Rx transfer from husband's semen into my gut into breastmilk?
Patient : Still healing after childbirth, my husband and I are intimate with fellatio. I am also breastfeeding our newborn (1 month old) and am concerned that the prescription drugs just prescribed to my husband might somehow transfer into my milk from ingesting his semen. (He is on Allopurinol, Phentermine, and metFormin for weight loss (I am not overweight). Is this possible?
