I had been taking procet prior to finding out I was pregnant. I would guess I am 6 weeks. Have I caused harm to my baby?
Hi
Thank you for your question
No, there is no harm to your baby- even if you took it for the first couple of weeks of pregnancy. I would not take any more.

make sure you are taking your prenatals.


I hope that this helped

please leave positive feedback if it did :-)

Well I just found out on Tuesday this week so it was more then a couple weeks. Is that answer still the same?

Answer is still the same. There is no significant exchange between maternal and fetal blood until after the 6th week.
if there was a bad effect on the baby, you woudl have just miscarried. It is an all or none response at that point

I hope that this helped

please leave positive feedback if it did :-)
