Brief Answer:
Safe drug,no effect on fetus or pregnancy.

Detailed Answer:
Hi Sir,

I understand your concern.

Clingen vaginal pessary is absolutely safe in pregnancy with no known side effects on the fetus.

Its commonly given first line drug during pregnancy to treat infection and to avoid preterm labor.

So do not worry.

You need not be anxious.

Post your further queries if any,

Thank you.

Thanks for the response. Would like to double confirm... The tablet was asked to keep in vagina path... But mistakenly she swallowed like regular tablets... So swallowed it one time will not cause any problem for baby right ??

Brief Answer:
There will not be any effect due to the drug.

Detailed Answer:
Hi Sir,

Welcome again,

Nothing to worry.

Generally this tablet can be given both orally and vaginally.

Vaginal route is more effective than oral route in treating the infection,so generally given vaginal.

So do not worry.

By now even the drug metabolism would be almost over in your wife.

So to conclude there will not be any affect on fetus as well as outcome of the pregnancy with a single tablet.

Post your further queries if any,

Thank you.

I am into my 6th month of pregnancy and have few complications. I am on bed rest for rest of my pregnancy since the baby has come down and placenta has become weak. Dr has managed to stop the preterm labor and bleeding with certain injections however I have been facing itching problem around my vagina. Hence my dr has prescribed me clingen forte. Sometime After inserting the same I am facing a heavy passage of fluid from vagina. Is that normal ? Or yhis discharge is due to some other reasons ?

Hi Dr. I m 32 weeks pregnant. I have the last couple weeks had an irritable uterus with braxton hicks. I just got back from my gynecologist today and was asked to take utrogestan 100mg 3 times a day to prevent preterm labor. But when I search the web It says: Utrogestan 100mg Capsules are not a treatment for premature labour.Prescription of progesterone beyond the first trimester of pregnancy may reveal gravidic cholestasis What does this mean and what it is your opinion? Thank you,
