Customer Question

I'm currently 20 weeks pregnant and have an issue with reoccurring yeast infections. A Dr. Prescribed Fluconazole(Diflucan Eq) 150MG to me, and I was told to take one every 3 days for 3 days. I was curious if it was ok to take that, being that he previously stated that they don't normally prescribethat medication to pregnant women, because the pills were at low risk for still birth. It's my first child so I'm pretty paranoid, sorry.
