If me and my partner smoke marijuana daily will it decrease my chances of getting pregnant?

Not good. Limited data last i checked, but consensus is that it is likely harmful. How harmful is variable and obviously depends on usage. Studies on tobacco and fertility are sketchy but suggest around 15% reduction per conception cycle. It's not a good idea (for a lot of reasons) for women or men when trying to conceive. Read more...
Generally not but... If this were a common problem there would be far fewer babies born here in the santa cruz, ca area :) however, there is evidence that heavy marijuana use may lower sperm count somewhat and reduce the ability of sperm to fertilize eggs, but no evidence it causes "infertility" per se. But for couples experiencing fertility issues it would be wise to reduce or stop marijuana use. See comment:. Read more...

No. That's the short answer. The longer answer is that while pregnant, whatever you put into your body, you also put into the body of your developing fetus. In many cases we know absolutely that certain substances like alcohol can definitely cause damage and birth defects. With other substances, we do not know the effects on the fetus, but think it a very good idea to not expose a fetus to any drugs. Read more...

To some extent. Data confirm that babies born to marijuana smokers have smaller heads. The data is conflicting at this point whether learning deficits are also part of this process. Like any drug, when it is powerful enough to do good it is powerful enough to do bad.I consider it as bad as alcohol to the fetal brain. Read more...

If I smoke marijuana on a daily basis & being 22 weeks pregnant, at how many weeks should I stop before it can found in my baby's system?

It wouldn't exactly. be ethical for a doctor to share this info - if it was clear that you would continue to use cannabis until that time. Please, please, please stop your cannabis abuse now. Let your doctor know if you are having trouble quitting. Read more...
Immediately. If I have reason to look, I will find it in their system from exposures after 20 weeks & possibly earlier depending on intensity of exposure. Stop now & avoid getting on a CPS watch list & they may never look. If you are a known user or your pot smelling friends visit you after delivery it would trigger a study. In my state the positive study sends the kids to foster care & you to the courthouse. Read more...

No. but you can get sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV and hepatitis B, as well as HPV, which carries a risk of later cancer. There is no evidence that marijuana reduces the efficacy of implanon, but if getting stoned makes it more likely that you have unprotected sex, especially with casual partners, then you are exposing yourself to considerable risks of other unpleasant things, like STDs.
