How long does it take for blood flow and libido to come back to your penis after using meth once?

How long does it take for blood flow and libido to come back to your penis after using meth once?

Not too long: Promise yourself not to use meth (or other foolishly risky junk) and if you're really concerned set up a urologist appointment for an eval. Before the time of the appointment, I expect you'll find your symptoms are improved. You can still keep the appt to be sure, but you should be as well as before the meth. Best! ...Read more

I am 14 weeks pregnant and have used meth. Will use show in cord blood if there is no more use from this point. How long will it stay in blood?

Stay clean: The meth exposure will soon disappear but consider this you last time for it to do so. Soon the baby's body will start forming poo and that can reflect any drug exposure back several months from the time of delivery. If you stay drug free, baby is no longer at risk and you would not be at risk of losing it to foster care. ...Read more

When pregnant, how long does it take to get methamphetamine out of your system urine and blood?

When pregnant, how long does it take to get methamphetamine out of your system urine and blood?

A few days: There is a difference between the half-life of the drug itself, which is only a few hours, and the ability to detect the metabolites of the drug in urine. Metabolites of many drugs can be found several days after even a single use, and may persist even longer in those who are chronic users, or use higher doses. Please refrain from this drug in pregnancy (and in general) and get help for it. ...Read more

Is this normal or dangerous Everytimemy friend shoots meth she pukes/coughs up blood??

Why do you ask?: I'm most concerned about you -- or that anyone would think it is "normal" either to vomit or cough up blood, or to inject methamphetamine in the first place. "Friends" like this will drag you down. Urge her to get help with both her habit -- which will destroy her and hurt those who care about her -- and a physician's care for what could be TB that endangers those around her. Please do this. ...Read more

Is there something I can take to pass a 12 panel blood and urine drug test. The only thing I have used is meth.

Is there something I can take to pass a 12 panel blood and urine drug test. The only thing I have used is meth.

Stop using meth: Nothing will work; online stuff's for suckers. The best thing that can happen to you is to acknowledge your meth use and get help. This stuff is treacherous and if you continue to treat this business lightly, you are likely to lose self-control and enter the downward spiral to death. I've autopsied folks like this and yes, they DO claw the flesh off their bodies as they are dying. Save your life. ...Read more

You cant win: 18 years old, meth user and 5 nights in a row. Let me hear your question again. You want to beat the system. For what? You fail even if you succeed.
Get treated instead. You cannot beat it alone. And I am sure, this is not the only junk you use.

I feel really weird because I combined alcohol, meth, & nyquil and puked a little blood. What should I do?

Stop doing it.: I doubt you've permanently damaged yourself, but maybe this is a message: quit messing up your body! What you're doing is called 'polysubstance abuse'. You're 39 and should know better. Time to make an appointment with a counselor knowledgeable in substance abuse as well as other mental health problems. ...Read more

My husband was around his sister who smokes meth and weed. He has to take a hair follicle or blood test will it show up just from being around her?

No.: Hair samples are washed before being tested for the metabolites and blood tests are useful only for a very short period. Urine testing cutoffs are set high enough to avoid this scenario. So unless your husband is actively using his test should be negative. ...Read more

How far back into a pregnancy cord blood tests will show meth use? We are foster parents waiting for results on the baby and mom of our foster daughte

Not where we look: If I want to verify type or length of drug exposure in a newborn I check their first poop. The poop begins to form about 12 weeks into pregnancy and it remains metabolically inactive after it forms. It can provide data looking back several months, retaining trace amounts of the drugs. Some specialty labs do hair testing which can also yield data. Blood tests record more recent exposure. ...Read more

I am experiencing blood or red colored urine, chest tightness and arm numbness I also have a problem shootinf meth. Dows that have a lot to do with my symptoms? I'm really scared.

More than likely: Shooting meth is the likely explanation for your symptoms and you should quit doing meth. You may wish to see help from an addiction specialist. Visit this site for information on this topic: https://www. Drugabuse. Gov/publications/drugfacts/methamphetamine
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

I'm 24 yrs and I went to a hospital worried about lung cancer my blood analysis and xray came healthy should I worried I use to smoke meth and weed?

Watch for changes: In general, for the short number of years you would have smoked, you should be okay. Lung cancer risk is a lot about genetics and other factors, not just smoking. Congratulations on not smoking any longer. Just keep track of any new breathing symptoms. Also a change in cough or unexplained weight loss should be looked into. ...Read more
