Thank you for your patience.

It is advisable o avoid using deworming medicines in pregnancy as far as possible. Hygiene measures should be tried first - since pinworms die in about 6 weeks, it is better to remain to take measures like washing hands frequently , and change underclothes regularly during these 6 weeks.

If it does not help, medicines like pyrantel pamoate (Combantrin) can be used.

I hope this helped.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
