I took pain killers

I had an IUD put in today so I took a couple of hydrocodones to help with the pain and to relax. Should I pump and dump? And how many times?

No need to pump and dump, go right ahead and nurse!

It was about 10 mg, so it's okay?

I took percocets after mine. Are hydrocodones much different?

Most pain medications are ok to take while nursing.
Just stay away from aspirin.

you're fine. I was given Norco (hydrocodone + acetaminophen) after my csection. Percocet is oxycodone + acetaminophen. Oxy is a little stronger and more controlled because it's more often used for sustance abuse.
