    Gentian Violet, vaginal thrush and pregnancy: Is it safe for baby during pregnancy?

    Is it safe for baby while you are pregnant?? Has anyone used it while pregnant? How many wks pregnant were you? How long?

    Personally I would avoid it since it has been shown to have dose-related carcinogenic properties, I wouldn't take that chance especially in early pregnancy. Have you tried any other topical treatments?

    I thought it was taken off the market?

    I think it's still used esp in uses where you only use a tiny amount, but I personally would avoid it in pg.
