Don’t Use Meth While Pregnant

Medical professionals are increasingly urging pregnant women to take better care of their health with researchers revealing more facts or let us say dangers that they think can easily trigger the health of the mother or can severely damage the health of their unborn child in the womb itself.

The recent research of the scientists has pointed that pregnant women must lower the use of methamphetamine during their pregnancy as it can risk the life of their unborn children for behavioral problems during childhood.

Linda LaGasse, PhD, of Brown University in Providence, R. I., and her colleagues, learnt from their Infant Development, Environment and Lifestyle (IDEAL) study that children who are exposed to methamphetamine in the womb, at ages 3 and 5, start showing more risks by having greater emotional reactivity (P=0.006), higher anxiety levels, depression levels (P=0.019) etc as compared to the unexposed generation.

Also, the researchers noticed that children at age 5 only started showing some behavior problems (acting out) and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) symptoms, which they referred would also have aroused to the exposure, explained the online reports in the April issue of Pediatrics.

“The ability to identify specific behavioral syndromes in children as early as preschool age could lead to the development of preventive intervention programs”, they wrote, adding that early intervention “may prevent escalation into delinquency and psychopathology”.

Drugs like cocaine and opiates are common, but Methamphetamine is presently being preferred by a majority of people around the world and that too with higher number of women users than men.

Thus health officials are getting more concerned with the use of methamphetamine and their severe effects upon the fetal growth and infant neuro-behavior.
