I had a D&C a week ago and I'm thinking off going out. Can I drink alcohol?

It still has risks: alcohol impairs both healing and blood clotting, particularly if you drink larger amounts (more than 1-2 standard drinks). This could result in increased bleeding, as well as risk of infection. Your OB/GYN provider who did the D&C is the one you should be asking. If the D&C was for pregnancy termination, unsafe sex is more likely when drinking, so take proper precautions!! ...Read more

I'm on medication but whenever I drink alcohol heavily I become suicidal. Is alcohol my problem here? (i drink on occasion, last night was horrible)

I'm on medication but whenever I drink alcohol heavily I become suicidal. Is alcohol my problem here? (i drink on occasion, last night was horrible)

Serotonin receptors: One of the reasons you should not drink on seroytergic drugs is exactly this reaction which I have noted can cause severe suicidality even with as little as two drinks. This is a worse depression than when you started on the medication. The prosuicidal effect can last up to 72 hours. Alcohol can cause depression on its own anyway. Do yourself a favor and stop drinking even if hospital is needed. ...Read more
