What to think about
Trich during pregnancy raises
the risk of premature rupture of membranes (PROM) and premature delivery.
Treating the infection doesn't appear to reduce this risk.3 If you are pregnant and have trich, talk to your doctor about
the pros and cons of treatment.
suppositories or creams aren't recommended, because
oral metronidazole is much more effective. Vaginal medicines cure trich in less
than 50% of cases.5
gel, which is used to treat
bacterial vaginosis, is not recommended for treatment
