Hi,

A friend of mine has been TTC for a whilst and is now starting clomid, but she also has another problem that needs to be investigated unrelated to ttc and they need to use a local aneasthetic. Does anyone know if this will effect the medication? Should she wait to have the investigation?

Thanks for your help! smile.gif

My understanding of a local anaesthetic is that it only affects the area its used on. It is not intended to go into the blood stream or have an affect on the body as a whole so I would have thought there would be no issues with it. For a general anaesthetic though it would quite possibly be a different story as you can't always take your medication on the day of. Either way she should check with her specialist if she is concerned.

What Hels has explained ^^ is my understanding too- I've had local anaesthetics for IVF procedures and there isn't any problem with them- the local just numbs the area where it's administered - your friend I'm sure would be fine but if ever in doubt she should call her FS smile.gif
