Vicodin Getting into Sperm or Ejaculate?
I use vicodin and valium for a left and right inguinal hernia and migrating mesh from previous surgery. My girlfriend is pregnant. I am very worried that vicodin or valium is getting into my sperm or ejaculate fluid and being transferred to my pregnant girlfriend. How worried should I be?
Thank you for your question. There is no risk of transmission of medications or drugs from you to your girlfriend during sexual intercourse, and no risk to the fetus.
