hi, cansoft tablet contains clotrimazole as vaginal tablet, the chances of absorption into systemic circulation is very less, can be inserted into vagina with finger or with insertor,
as infection can lead to early labor and chorioamnionitis etc features,
you can use the tablet as told by your doctor as benefits over weigh the risks here.
take care.
