Welcome to Healthcaremagic
Methamphetamine directly affects the developing fetus. It constricts blood vessels, raising blood pressure and depriving the placenta of circulation, which the baby needs to grow properly and withstand the stress of labor and birth. Meth use in pregnancy makes preterm labor and stillbirth more likely. You should consult your doctor and then take a decision ( positive or negative) regarding pregnancy termination.Take care.
