If you were my patient, I would advise you that most drugs and alcohol will NOT harm sperm quality, but might decrease the numbers and cause lowered fertility.
The other thing to consider too, is that whether you are going to want to continue to use these substances after the baby is born. Presumably you wouldn't want to raise a child in that environment and cutting back now would be an excellent plan.
I can't condone use of any illegal drugs. As far as alcohol goes, one to two drinks (beer or glass of wine) per day is reasonable.
If you can't quit, try AA.
Hi Doctor B. I totally agree that a drug habit is v bad for a child to be born into. But can I please ask about very occasional use of cannibus and ecstasy. If these were used by the male partner in March , would there be an amount of time to wait until trying to concieve ? I think from online search it might be four months is safe as sperm takes three months to produce/build and any drug would be out of your system within one month? Thank you very much and best wishes
I have a question but can't seem to be able to post on this forum. Help please.
