I'm going out for saint patricks day with my kids dad. I know i'll b having more than one drink & smoke. How many days do I not have to breastfeed?

48-72 hours: Certainly, you can pump in advance to take over the few days you will have to assure any alcohol or cigarette carcinogens are out of your system, but too bad you can not just hold off on the smoking and alcohol for this one year? If you do decide the former course of action, do not forget to pump for those days off too, so your breasts stay lactating. Good luck. ...Read more

If: If she has true panic attacks she will be able to describe them and the DX should be clear from this alone.

Dear Dr I wonder whether breast canser transmitted by needle pricking the one that use for testing blood sugar from female to male? Tx alot

No, it cannot.: Breast cancer cannot be transferred to another person via a needle that was used to check blood sugar. In fact, it's generally quite difficult to transfer cancer from one person to another, unless they are very immune compromised.
That being said, needles should never be shared due to the risk of transferring infectious diseases from one person to another, like hepatitis. ...Read more
