Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Taking cocaine during the early stages of pregnancy can be harmful to the foetus. Also, depending on the type of screening test done, it can also be detected during pregnancy drug screening tests. However, if it is a blood test, it is very unlikely that it would be positive after 2 to 3 months period of abstinence.

I would advise you to completely abstain from taking cocaine or any other substance during your pregnancy. Also, please go for an early antenatal check-up with an obstetrician, so that you can be started on folic acid supplements (which can prevent congenital anomalies in the foetus).

Wish you all the best.
