Welcome to Healthcaremagic
Thanks for your query
Procto glyvenol normally has a local action but since it is not well proven to be safe during pregnancy, it is advised to stop using it. For your hemorrhoids it is better to continue takuing warm sizt bath in plain warm water. It is effective.Dont worry about any untoward action of the medicine on your pregnancy so far.
Take care
