Use during pregnancy and lactation

With the use of clindamycin intravaginally in the II or III trimester of pregnancy there was no increase in the frequency of congenital abnormalities of the fetus. If Dalacin vaginal suppositories are used during the II or III trimester of pregnancy (although there have not been any official studies on the use of suppositories in pregnant women), then an adverse effect on the fetus seems unlikely. Use of the drug in the II-III trimester of pregnancy is possible if the potential benefit to the mother exceeds the risk to the fetus.

Adequate controlled studies on the use of the drug in the first trimester of pregnancy have not been conducted; therefore, Dalacin vaginal suppositories can be prescribed to women in the first trimester of pregnancy only if absolutely necessary; when the potential benefit of drug therapy outweighs the potential risk to the fetus.

In animal studies with the introduction of clindamycin s / c or inside no negative effects on the fetus were found, except in cases of taking the drug in doses toxic to the mother.

It is not known whether clindamycin is excreted in breast milk after intravaginal use. Clindamycin is found in breast milk after oral or parenteral administration, so during breastfeeding, you should either cancel the use of the drug, or stop breastfeeding, given the degree of importance of the drug to the mother.
