Summary of Use during Lactation

Vaginal butoconazole has not been studied during breastfeeding. About 5.5% of a vaginal dose is absorbed and its plasma half-life is 21 to 24 hours. Because there is no published experience with butoconazole during breastfeeding, other agents may be preferred, especially while nursing a newborn or preterm infant.
