By David Joel Miller.
Should you worry if you get pregnant by a Methcathinone user?
Anything that damages an egg or the sperm could result in birth defects, age, the physical health of either party and so on. There is always a risk of spontaneous mutations and genetic damage. I have not seen much good research that indicates that one drug is better or worse than another when used by the father.
ANY drug use by the mother during pregnancy is risky. Sorry ladies. Doctors even take pregnant women off some prescribed medications. Alcohol is the biggest risk factor for preventable birth defects we know of. The only fully safe amount of alcohol a woman should consume during pregnancy is NONE!
If you are worried about the drug use of the father of your child you have more to worry about than possible birth defects. YOUR BABY’S DADDY MIGHT BE A DRUG ADDICT.
Pick your babies daddies and mamma’s wisely, you can break up with your partner but your child’s other parent is forever.
