My partner had a cocaine addiction for many years, I felt sick when I found out he first took it when he was 14. (hehas adhd and claims he used to to self medicate) he also smoked. Now he is 29 he has been clean from cocaine for 9 months I have also made him quit smoking I was just wondering if this could have effected our chances of having a child in the future? could this have made him infertile?

I HAD A REAL BAD ADDICTION TO COCAINE FOR MANY, MANY YEARS AND TOOK IT MANY DIFFERENT WAYS. AND I HAVE HAD THREE CHILDREN AFTER MANY YEARS USEING, I BEEN CLEAN NOW FOR JUST ABOUT 5 YEARS AND CAN SAY WITH CONFIDENCE, I NEVER HEARD ANYONE BEING STERILE FROM COKE, IF ANYTHING THIER KIDS MAY HAVE A.D.H.D., BUT EVEN IF IT DID INTERFEAR WITH FERTILITY IT WOULD ONLY HAVE BEEN TEMPORARLY. TELL HIM CONGRATULATIONS ON THEM 9 MONTHS AND I WANT HIM TO KNOW LIFE IS JUST GONNA KEEP GETTING BETTER AS HE STAYS CLEEN. I CAN TESTIFY TO THAT. MY QUALITY OF LIFE GETS BETTER FROM HEALTH AND MIND, TO RELATIONSHIPS AND JOBS, AND YOU AQUIRE NEW FRIENDS THAT ARNT ADDICTS, AND HE WILL BEABLE TO ACTUALLY ENJOY LIFE. AND THE BEST THING I LIKE IS I DONT WAKE UP ANYMORE IN A WORSE SITUATION FROM USEING LIKE BEFORE, IT ALWAYS GOT WORSE AND HARDER TO DEAL WITH MY PROBLEMS, GOOD LUCK TO YOU GUYS, YOULL HAVE A BABY SOON, YOU WILL.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Cocaine does affect fertility, now that he is clean for almost a year, there is hope he got some good healthy sperms synthesis going on. COnsult a fertility consultant and let them help.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
