Electromyography (EMG) and Nerve Conduction Studies

Very Low Risk

Safe. Compatible. Minimal risk for breastfeeding and infant.

Electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction studies are tests that measure the electrical activity of muscles and nerves. (Medline Plus 2021)

The practice of this technique does not cause changes in the production or composition of breast milk.

The practice of an EMG is compatible with lactation.

To avoid interference, you should not breastfeed during the test, which lasts a few minutes. Immediately after this exploration you can breastfeed without problems.

Suggestions made at e-lactancia are done by APILAM team of health professionals, and are based on updated scientific publications. It is not intended to replace the relationship you have with your doctor but to compound it. The pharmaceutical industry contraindicates breastfeeding, mistakenly and without scientific reasons, in most of the drug data sheets.

Jose Maria Paricio, Founder & President of APILAM/e-Lactancia

Your contribution is essential for this service to continue to exist. We need the generosity of people like you who believe in the benefits of breastfeeding.

Thank you for helping to protect and promote breastfeeding.
