Hi, Clotrimazole topical has been assigned to pregnancy category B by the FDA. Systemic absorption is minimal following topical or vaginal administration. Clotrimazole use has not been well studied during the first trimester. Clotrimazole should only be used during the first trimester when need has been clearly established...Consult Gynecologist for further advice..
