Hi there.. I don't know if I'm pregnant yet.. Been trying for 6 years.. I suffer feom chronic back pain.. which is 2 slipped discs and Pain in the SIJ.. I take upto 6 tablets a day.. Every tablet contains 30mg codeine and 500mg paracetamol.. My husband and I did the deed a few days ago and 2 days later I had some bleeding.. It feels like it cud have been implantation bleeding.. But it's too early for a pregnancy test.. I'm still taking codeine/paracetamol an with every tablet thinking I'm harming the baby.. If there is one.. Is it too early to think of quitting.. I was thinking of confirming the pregnancy first and then quitting but I'm confused.. Been trying soo long that I don't want to mess this up..

Codeine is a morphine derivative. I would ask your GP.
