Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
For occasional users it can stay in body upto 4 days, for frequent users it can stay upto 10 days and for regular users or extreme users it can stay upto 70 days. Drinking lot of water helps to flush out the drug faster. For further clarification and assistance visit your doctor/gynecologist. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your child’s treating doctor/pediatrician and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
