Baby scare and my boyfriend may be doing Coke

My period is a week late so possibly could be pregnant not sure yet but I think my boyfriend may be doing Coke I'm afraid if I am pregnant it might affect the baby and I'm not prepared to deal with things like that. I'm very against abortions but if I found out I was pregnant and there was something wrong with the baby I'm not sure I would want to continue with the pregnancy. I'm scared and don't know what I should do or what the possible affects of my boyfriend maby doing Coke might have on my baby. I don't want life advice just want to know facts about how this could affect our child. HELP PLEASE!

The web tells me that sperm affected by addictions are more likely to result in miscarriage than birth defects. More to the point, bringing up a baby in a household affected by addiction often has developmental effects.

That's really scary and unfortunate Sad I don't use and never have but I'm pretty suspicious of my boyfriend and there is no way I would be letting him do stuff like that if I did turn out to be pregnant. I would leave him before I put up with that kind of stuff. Thanks tho (:

If your boyfriend uses Cocaine, it is unlikely that it will affect the fetus, unless you have also smoked or injected cocaine yourself.

In addition, you still need to confirm that you are pregnant. Hence there is no reason to panic, but just do a pregnancy test, and clear your doubts.
