User:Hey doc I would like to know if I still have a chance to get my mrs pregnant. I have been using meth every day for about 7 years also ATM I'm doing a 10 week coarse of sustanon 250 and decka they are anabolic steroids. I know you will probably tell me that doing this is very silly. I know this but that's how it is. Because of the steroids I am extremely horny all of the time. I ejaculate every day sometimes twice a day. What would all this do to my sperm count . My email is YYYY@YYYY thank you
Doctor:Please give me a moment to read your query
Doctor:Ejaculating every day is normal and should not interfere with chances of getting pregnant
User:Ok cool but what about the drug use
Doctor:It may lower the volume of semen
Doctor:You have been using it for a long time
Doctor:So I would suggest that you get a semen analysis done to confirm the status
User:I know it's hard to kick the habit
Doctor:You may stop cool XXXXXXX
Doctor:consult a doctor about it
Doctor:chose a date
User:Yes but I'm a tradesman and I work every day
Doctor:I understand
User:To stop cold XXXXXXX won't work cause I won't work
Doctor:You may have some withdrawal symptoms which can be managed with medicines
Doctor:In that case start giving more intervals between doses
User:Anyway back to the mrs getting pregnant
Doctor:For example give a gap of 2 - 3 days initially
User:She also uses every day
User:Will that affect things
Doctor:She definitely has to stop taking it before think of pregnancy
Doctor:It can cause defects in the baby
Doctor:Those defects can stay with it lifelong
Doctor:It is not safe
User:Yeah we have spoken about it
Doctor:So what does she think about it?
User:Can't she stop once we know she is pregnant
Doctor:She has to stop beforehand
Doctor:because the medicines stay in blood for some time
User:Why is that
Doctor:And the initial phase of development is crucial
Doctor:especially for brain development
Doctor:of the baby
User:Oh ok
Doctor:You do not want to have an abnormal baby
Doctor:and then take care of it all your life
User:I know
Doctor:you want a healthy baby
Doctor:who will take care of himself later
User:I already have a beautiful daughter to my ex.
User:I was on drugs when we had her
User:My mrs also has a healthy boy
Doctor:That is good
User:She used drugs until she found out she was pregnant
Doctor:That is very risky
User:She stopped whilst pregnant
Doctor:I would not suggest that
User:And during breast feeding
Doctor:There is high risk of defects in baby
User:Ok so how long before should she stop
Doctor:Atleast one month before
User:Ok we'll try
Doctor:Yes you need to
User:That only goes for her though is that right
Doctor:Mostly yes
Doctor:since she will be carrying the baby
Doctor:But if you also stop it will be supportive to her
User:Ideally i would like to as well
Doctor:Do you have any doubts?
User:No thanks for your time.
Doctor:I hope you both are able to do it and have a healthy pregnancy
Doctor:Thanks for consulting
