Welcome to HCM,

Urine and yeast infection may not affect fetus, but infections are generally harmful.

Antibiotics and other medicines should be avoided during first trimester of pregnancy as far as possible, but their harmful effects should be weighed against possibility of harm to mother, in the absence of treatment.

As monistat is to be used locally, harmful effect on fetus is not expected.

Clindamycin is not contraindicated during pregnancy.
