It is not typical to have vaginal infections related to tubal ligations, except in the situation where the antibiotics used during the procedure predispose you to an infection. This is not typical 4 months out from the procedure, though. Self treat with a yeast cream and call doctor! ...Read more

I had a c-section/tubal-ligation and was prescribed Percocet at the hospital and after discharge. I breastfeed, Did taking Percocet harm my baby?

I had a c-section/tubal-ligation and was prescribed Percocet at the hospital and after discharge. I breastfeed, Did taking Percocet harm my baby?

No: Most of the do not breastfeed labels are not based on scientific study--they just don't know, so they say do not take it. If Percocet were toxic to infants via breastfeeding, I believe that we would know about it. So I say no, do not worry. Mothers shooting up heroin may cause their infants to be born addicted, but cause no long-term effects on the baby. ...Read more

2 weeks after having vaginal labor and a tubal ligation, I had unprotected sex with my husband. Is this ok?

Don't do it: If you had unprotected sex and you are bottle feeding this early you may be pregnant by 6 weeks out. After delivery you may ovulate at least twice before 6 weeks out. In addition the reason we ask you to abstain for 5-6 weeks is that you are at risk from infection. Sex definitely if done too early can result in serious uterine infection.
