    Oxycodone is a category B drug as it relates to pregnancy.  That means damage to the fetus is possible but unlikely.  There are no studies available of its use in the 1st trimester.  Studies have shown no evidence of damage to the fetus in the 2nd and 3rd trimester. 

     

    One of our community members – Nicole – has wrestled with the issues of chronic pain and pregnancy.  She took oxycodone during her pregnancy and had a healthy baby.  She has kindly been willing to share her experiences with all of us. Here is a link to her first SharePost: My Journey through Pregnancy ... and Chronic Pain.  You can also click on "View All of Nicole's Posts" below her name to read her other SharePosts.  Or you can click on her name which will take you to her profile.  From there you can send her a private message if you like.

    We also have a great thread on Pregnancy, Motherhood and Chronic Pain in our forum (started by Nicole, whose user name in the forum is IceCreamGoddess).  There several women have shared their experiences.

    (Note:  If you've never been to the forum before, you'll have to register separately from your registration here on ChronicPainConnection.  You can, however, use the same e-mail address and password if you like to make it easier to remember.)
