Hi Sisi thanks for question.
Since your having your periods and your using clindamycin locally.It may not be much effective duraing periods.It is better for you to stop the local application of the clindamycin till you complete your periods and resume local application of clindamycin once your periods are over.
Hope I answered your question.
