Hello XXXXXXX
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.

What is the best way to clean out the access meth inmy nose? I have been clean for 21 days, but still cannot get it all out. I am not having a clogged nose. I can breathe through my nose just fine, but have access meth in my nose, tried to clean out with q tips, but does not work completely. I figured it would stop by now, but still keeps coming out and I hate it. I am 27 years old. 121 pounds. I used to use Meth in 2002 and 2003, but quit for years. Relapsed for about 4 months and now I quit again. How can I fix my nose and face?? Is this for real?? Will you actually give me a good answer? I am in treatment and cannot just pay for something that will not work.

Lately when i go to urinate i could see white small chunks that look like pus, and smells funny.

Hi I m not quite sure when i noticed them but I have these raised, large red sores on my arms. When opened, the sores secrete a clear, sticky liquid that dries quickly. There is minimal to no bleeding when sores are opened. I m not sure what they are, I have been cleaning them with hydrogen peroxide and neosporin daily and covering them with bandaids but they do not appear to be getting better. Please help!!
