Yeast infection in pregnancy? Think twice about fluconazole. This study's findings regarding the risk of miscarriage may mean it's time to forego fluconazole in favor of topical azoles as first-line treatment. Practice changer: Avoid prescribing oral fluconazole in early pregnancy because it is associated with a higher rate of spontaneous abortion than is topical azole therapy. STRENGTH OF RECOMMENDATION: B: Based on a large cohort study performed in Denmark.
