Fertility, pregnancy and lactation

Pregnancy

Studies on animals have shown no evidence of teratogenicity. In the absence of teratogenic effect in animals, teratogenicity in human is not expected. In fact, now substances responsible for the malformations in human have proved to be teratogenic in the animals during well-conducted studies in two species

Clinical studies on pregnant women have shown no malformation or foetotoxic action of this medicine

Lactation

As a precaution, this medication is not recommended during lactation, due to the absence of sufficient data on the secretion of miconazole nitrate in milk
