Hi,

A long time. So, there is the amount in the blood. It has a fairly short duration in the blood. BUT it goes into fat and comes back out at an irregular rate. The accumulation depends on how much goes in and it requires fairly heavy daily use for this to be detected although it depends on the level they are testing it.

It goes into growing hair. It stays in the hair until the hair is cut. They generally never test hair.

But, it goes into the baby's poop in the middle of pregnancy and there is no way to get it back out and this is usually tested. So, several uses at the right time in mid to late pregnancy will be found.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
