There are mixed answers online regarding whether meth could show up in yourself from having sex with a guy who uses meth. Some of the answers are no, you could not feel the effects because the amount would be too small, but some say yes, if you took a drug test (especially if it is a test that looks for minute amounts) it might show up, especially if semen is ingested orally. There have been anecdotal reports of women testing positive for cocaine who do not use cocaine but their partner does, and of some medications (like penicillin) giving the woman (who was allergic to it) a reaction from swallowing semen. Are you asking because you are afraid of exposure to the drug or because you are on a random drug-testing regime? It sounds like the sex would not so much expose you to the effects of the drug as it might be detectable on a sensitive drug test. If your job hinges on clean drug tests and you're being tested randomly, I would take this risk seriously.

We've had this question on MedHelp before, and the answers have all moved pretty fast to, why have sex (especially unprotected sex) with a meth user? Some guys will lie about their drug use and can cover it up pretty well, but once you know, it seems like that should be it as far as sex is concerned.

If he’s a meth user, it’s a possibility he does heroine and shares needles. You need to go get tested. You definitely need to stop having unprotected sex with him.
