Is it safe to take syntocinon if I give birth at home?

No: Oxytocin should be delivered only in a hospital setting where your baby can be monitored for distress and an emergency c-section can be accomplished in an expeditious fashion. The preferred administration is intravenous, as that can be discontinued rapidly. At home, you only have the nasal spray, and the effects go away much more slowly. ...Read more

I want baby to have vit. k shot not breastfeeding due to medication would like syntocinon for delivery of placenta would you add anything else?

Birth list??: I'm not sure exactly what you are asking, but from the info you gave I assume you are making a list for your birth experience.

I'd reassess not breastfeeding - there are actually VERY FEW medications that you cannot take while breastfeeding... ...Read more

But can tell me which company's product  rates better re effectiveness? As mentioned, no generic works as well as elavil (amitriptyline) did & this isn't a mind thing

Why is nexplanon have a higher effectiveness rate then other birth control options or tubal ligation?

Why is nexplanon have a higher effectiveness rate then other birth control options or tubal ligation?

Highly effective: The main reason nexplanon is so effective is that it does not require that you remember to do something - the largest cause of birth control pill failure is forgetting to take the pill. Tubal ligation has a very low failure rate, but it is possible for the surgery to fail to close the tubes completely (the reported rate of failure of tubal ligation is up to 1 in 200 (1 in 2000 for nexlanon) ...Read more
