Patient : My wife was not aware she was pregnant. She did a 10 day juice fast, eating nothing and consuming only vegetable and fruit juices and herbal teas. We believe that conception would have occurred just a few days prior to the fast. She also consumed 3 or 4 alcoholic beverages at three different times after the fast. We just discovered that she is pregnant for roughly 4 weeks. Will the fast or alcohol consumption hinder the development of the embryo?
