Father's drug use can affect unborn baby

It has been well documented that a Mother who uses drugs while pregnant can mean irreversible damage to a baby. Studies are now showing that a Father who uses drugs at the time of conception can also have negative, even life-threatening effects on the child. While a Father’s drug use cannot cause addiction in the child, it can mutate the DNA which has a direct result on the physical and mental capabilities of the child.

Deformities and retardation can be the result of the Father’s drug use. For years, the Mother was always assumed to be responsible when there was a child born with a deformity or reduced brain function. It is now known that is not always the case. Even if the Mother is drug-free, if the Father uses drugs, it can affect the child. The scope of problem has not yet been realized. Increased deformities have been established but studies are still ongoing.

Drug use or alcoholism by either parent can be detrimental to a conceived child. The Father’s role in birth defects as a result of drug use is being studied widely now. Young people are diagnosed with more and more mental and physical disorders which may be the direct result of the drug use of the Father. Mother’s who use drugs or alcohol while pregnant are now being brought up on criminal charges if the child is born addicted or with a disability. The time will come when the Fathers are brought in and tried for their role in a child’s disability. The responsibility must be fairly divided.

The DNA from both parents determines who the child is. Their eye color and their body formation all come from the combined DNA. A Father who is alcoholic or drug addicted at the time of conception may pass on inferior DNA to the child. This can result in a miscarriage, child deformities and retardation as well as documented cases of other troubles. It was once believed that alcohol or drug use would or could not effect a fetus, but it is now known that it can and does. In fact, any drug or alcohol use by the father within several months of conception can lead to a negative, even deadly effect on the baby.

For drug users/addicts, the damage isn't confined to you. At the very least, do your future child a favor and get sterilization (vasectomy, etc).

Certain drugs, once hooked on, it's nearly impossible to get off. Relapsing is a certainty. Also, certain drugs, once you pass the limit, you become irreparably damaged (including physiologically).

I dont think damages done on the father are passed to the unborn child.

True,long term use of many hardcore drugs make permanent changes in the brain but i wonder if those are really passed down. :|

relapse is very possible but technically,this is just abt the time of conception.

If a substance can damage sperm cells, seems reasonable to suggest the damage can be passed on. Diet has a direct effect on male fertility. Why not quality? The only question is if a substance has that effect.

Never thought of it that way.

Usually,the first finger points at the mother because she carried that child longest.When speaking of effects of alcohol,it is the mother that is told to stop smoking,drinking alcohol months ahead while planning for a pregnancy.

Makes sense.

I pray that Allah keeps you all healthy. Advise your relatives who smoke to quit it; if not for health reasons, for Islam.

Seriously I don't get Somali fathers who smoke my friends father also smokes. Isn't this bad influence on their kids? Doesn't it tempt you to also smoke? I know for a fact if my father smoked my brothers would too.
