hydrocodon and conception
An_253713 posted:

My husband was taking for hydrocodon for almost a week then for kidney stones when I conceived. Would there be any problem? I mean is it possible to pass the drug through semen and cause any birth defects for the baby. I am really getting worried.

Sarah McMoyler, RN responded:
Highly unlikely - as a medical professional, I am unaware of any contraindications associated with medication being passed via the partner affecting the embryo.
