Different question: I hope you don't mind if I answer a slightly different question--sort of like a fire-fighter being asked to help save a kitten in a tree when a house is burning down: Meth is probably the most extraordinarily dangerous street drug anybody could be using. Much more important is for anyone using it to get help in stopping forever. Let your Dr. know this is an issue.

Depends: Medications and drugs are excreted by half-lives. The half-life is how long it takes to get half of the substance out of your system. Methamphetamine has a half-life that varies between 10 and 30 hours. So how long it stays in your system depends upon how much you use. As far as how long it can be detected in your system, this depends upon the sensitivity of the method used.
