Hello, lactacyd containing lactic acid which lower the vaginal pH and prevent possible vaginal infection , this is good during normal menstrual period , but during pregnancy vaginal pH increases and aciditic condition irritates amniotic sac , so only its not good option. You stop it now after pregnancy you can continue.
