Is cocaine carried through semen?
I am 4 months pregnant and received a huge shock that my husband has been taking cocaine behind my back.

My question is plain and simple.
Will this effect my baby at as I am not sure if his semen would carry the drug into my system? I don't believe we have made love while he has been on it but would this have an effect the very next day?

As far as we know, drugs are not carried in semen.
