I used cocaine one time only, a very small amount. Will it affect my sperm and how long should I wait before trying to become pregnant?

I used cocaine one time only, a very small amount. Will it affect my sperm and how long should I wait before trying to become pregnant?

Maybe, just stop use: Studies, though limited, show that regular use of Cocaine during pregnancy may have a significant effect. With one single use of cocaine, it would seem you'd be at a lower risk; however, regular use can cause a decrease in female fertility.

I used about half a gram of cocaine last night at around 4am. How long till i can breast feed my 25 day old baby again? One time thing.

At least 36-48 hrs: To clear from breast milk, 2 days. But for drug testing, most recommend 3 - 5 days to be absolutely sure. I'm so glad you say it's a one time thing. Probably until you are finished raising little kids, Cocaine use needs to become a memory. By then, many parents become anti-drug due to their new pov. For your own emotional stability and the benefits of breastfeeding you are correct to avoid it. ...Read more

I had over 70 puffs of crack cocaine one time in one night when i was 12 weeks pregnant and i never and wont have it again. Is my unborn baby affected?

Hard to know: Doing Cocaine in any form while pregnant can harm your baby, but it's hard to know how your baby is without watching its development or seeing how it is when born. Sometimes there might be no physical changes, but there can be behavioral problems that show themselves later. I hope you're successful in staying away from cocaine. Asking your doctor for help with this might be a good idea. ...Read more

In the brain alone, Cocaine is a very strong CNS stimulant that stops Dopamine from being recycled -- making it build up and disrupt normal neuronal communication. If you're dead, the long-term brain changes don't matter. ...Read more
