Hello,
Thank you for posting a query.

Firstly, contraceptive pills do their action mainly by inhibiting ovulation, increasing the viscosity of vaginal secretion to prevent the sperm motility, and by preventing anchoring of the fertilized ovum in uterus.

On the other side, fucidin cream is an antibacterial agent. It is applied locally. There is minimal systemic absorption. That means the cream's action is limited to that particular area.

So, it is very unnatural for fucidin cream to interfere with effectiveness of pills.

So, do not worry, the cream will not interfere with contraceptive pills.

Hope this information suffices. Let me know, if you have any more question.

Regards.

I have been having vaginal dryness, itching, cracked skin, with bleeding for several years. I have been given estrogen creams , pills, none of which have done no good whatsoever. Drs always check for infection, but never find any infection. I had a hysterectomy at the age of 34 years, leaving one ovary. I am trying to manage the pain with over the counter vaginal creams and lotions, none of which give much relief. Can you tell me what might be wrong? Doris Bishop
