Patient :My girlfriend found out today that we are 6 weeks pregnant. We have been partying pretty hard the last month on vacation. I want to know what risks, and to what extent of those risks we have to look forward to if we continue with the pregnancy.
Thanks for the query at ATD.
I have gone through your history and understand your concerns.
Kindly, clear one thing to me before I answer your question.
Did she take something (alcohol) or you are talking about sex?
Usually initial weeks of pregnancy are very tender weeks and foetal development occurs in this period of time and what ever harmful you are taking or doing may affect foetus. Whether foetus is affected or not can only be confirmed by second level ultrasonography at 16-22 weeks.
Hope found useful, feel free to ask more information.
