Brief Answer: May or may not related to meth Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for the query. Methamphetamine may not directly affect the menstrual cycle. But by affecting the general health status like causing anorexia, dietary changes, stress etc, it can affect the hormonal levels and may lead to delayed or missing of periods. But delay in periods can occur due to many other causes also. And yes, if you had unprotected intercourse around the time of ovulation there is possibility of pregnancy even being on meth. Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer followup queries. If you are satisfied with the answer, please give your review at the end of the discussion. Take care.
