We have been ttc but i'm wondering if we should'nt try this month because...

dh is having his wisdom teeth pulled and is taking lots of pain pills. What do you think? Could this cause harm to the little swimmers? If not, do you think taking the pain pills could increase our chances? I'm not taking any kind of bc pills or anything. I'm only asking that because i've read if you take bc it can lesson the effectiveness of your bc. But i'm just wondering!!!!!!!!

  • i'm really not sure of the effects of pain meds on his stuff to be honest. how long will he be on them? he probably wont be on them too long, no more than a week i would imagine. i'd say consult your doctor or just ask around. i'm somewhat confused about the last part of your question "i'm only asking because i've read if you take bc (i'm assuming that means birth control) it can lesson the effectiveness of your bc (birth control again?). lol, probably just a typo.... ?

  • The pain medicine will be in his system therefore if i were you i would wait to be sure! i used to work at an OB and we told patients if there was any pain medicines involved they should wait to TTC cause certain medicines will cause you to have issues conceiving while on them
