Pregnancy Questions and Answers

Question:
My friend just found out she is 8 weeks pregnant. She uses cocaine once or twice a week but says she'll stop now she's pregnant. Is this bad for the baby?
Answer:
Any kind of substance abuse or drug abuse is usually harmful during pregnancy. Get these problems under control before stopping birth control or trying to conceive. A healthcare provider can help a woman find assistance. (Doctors who deal with these problems are called addictionologists.) It is extremely important to stop using cocaine before conceiving. Research has shown that cocaine damage to the baby can occur as early as 3 days after conception!
