Question: Can a tests show negative if u been on meth for over 6 months and u have pregnant symptoms
Answered by Dr. Aarti Abraham 2 hours later
Thanks for writing to us.

There is no evidence that methamphetamine causes interference with pregnancy tests.
To be on the safer side, you should consult a gynecologist to confirm the pregnancy, either using a blood pregnancy test, or an ultrasound preferably.

Just a word of caution.
Illegal (high dose) dextroamphetamine and methamphetamine should not be used in pregnancy. They can cause miscarriage, prematurity, and problems in the newborn period like preterm birth, low birth weight , and others including jitteriness and trouble sleeping and feeding.

Take care and feel free to ask for further clarifications.
