It's an antifungal.  You're ob wouldn't have prescribed it if it wasn't necessary especially as he's dealing with your pregnancy.

Many medications have pregnancy and breastfeeding warnings on their packets because they cannot be tested effectively on pregnant or breastfeeding mums (it's not deemed ethical and can't get past a human ethics commitee).  A lot of medications are fine while pregnant and it's just the drug companies covering themselves as they don't have the research to 'prove' its okay even if lots of women have used it safely in pregnancy.

The benefits of using the medication will outweigh the risks to the baby.  Your OB probably thinks it's the best medication for what you need.

There are others ie clotrimazole or fluconazole but they may not be quite as effective.
