My name is Amanda and I'm currently breastfeeding my daughter who is 2 weeks old. My question well more concern is I recently was prescribed oxycodone 5/325 for my c section and as well as Tylenol #3 which is Tylenol/codeine 300/30 for an abscess I have from an infected tooth. And today not realizing it cuz of how much pain I've been in took in total bout 3,000mg of tylenol ...will it effect my daughter with the fact that I'm breastfeeding or is it OK,as long as I don't take that much again? Plz help!!!

I have a question so I'm now bout 5 weeks postpartum and me and my husband were finally able to have sex!! But the only thing is we didn't use any protection but when he came he didn't put it in all the way most of it went down my leg but I did feel a lil bit go inside..(sorry so explicit just would like an honest opinion).. But I immediately went and rinsed out! Do u think that will do anything or would u say since I'm still new to having a baby would I be more fertile than usual cuz before I did get pregnant it took us bout a year to. I'm just kind of freaking out cuz it is to soon to have another baby plus the fact I had a c-section but when Ur in the moment I guess u don't think. But cuz of that I canceled my doc apt the next morning cuz if I told them I had unprotected sex I know they wouldn't put me on birth control ..but with that part since we did it last night (may30) when should I be able to find out If I am pregnant? Sorry for all the questions but if someone can help answer them all I'd appreciate it:)

Yah that's what I figured since I didn't have her vaginally..but it gets frustrating where big ass pads lol especially if I'm not having that much bleeding for me to even wear a pad like that..so that's why I decided to wear a tampon and I made sure I out in the smallest one I could and it hurt a little but going in but when I took it out it felt like it was pulling my insides so then I got nervous!! Esoecialy when sex didn't even hurt as bad as the tampon.

Breast milk is best so yes, if that happens again you can always "pump and dump" but I think that it is fine, I am a lactation counselor and we were taught that even if you are on certain Street drugs it is still healthier to breastfeed than use formula. It's controversial I'm sure, but some extra Tylenol will be fine. I'm also a former young mom; my oldest is almost 21 and I'm only 38. Age is just a number, don't let people make you feel less of a mom because you're young, it took me years to understand that all the judgemental bs is just that...bs. Good luck!

Yah I got pregnant at 16,then 19, and of course 22 with my last. I know when u was pregnant everyone would ask me how old I was cuz I looked so young and then realized this wasn't my 1st but 3rd was shicked . but thgh I was young and probably should of waited till I was more mature and older I don't regret anything. I wish I would of made more better decisions but that's bout it!
