Could a 4 yr old born to a mother who was using meth during the pregnancy have learning difficulties? If so, what kind?
Yes: It is really unclear as to the precise nature of developmental problems in a child exposed to methamphetamine in utero. Cognitive, emotional and physical development can certainly be affected. Such a child is a risk for problems later in life. It's important to do the best for the child moving forward, including, but not limited to parenting classes to learn best to treat the child appropriately. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I smoked methamphetamine 2 days before i took 2 positive tests. My Dr sent me in for a blood pregnancy test immediately. Will they see it?
Wrong question: Forgive my frankness. You are about to become a mother. Congratulations on your pregnancy. I know that you want to be the best mother that you possibly can. Please sit down and collect your thoughts. Your being tested for pregnancy won't detect your drug abuse. But a good mother-to-be will take advantage of this chance to ask her physician for help in escaping from a life involving meth. Be brave. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If a baby was exposed to meth during pregnancy... How long will it take to completely flush out of his system? Or how long will it remain?
Not sure of your ?: If you mean how long does it stay in the child and can cause problems, it is a very short-acting drug in both adults and children, and is quickly metabolized and excreted. But if what you are asking is how can it be detected after birth, the answer depends on what they are testing. If they test the baby's first stool (meconium) it will basically be a record of months of exposure. If urine, 2-5 d. ...Read more
