It is not rare for young heroin addicts to get pregnant sooner than other young girls. Specially if they also belong to certain minority ethnic groups. Heroin addiction during pregnancy can lead to several medical complications. In worst cases, depending of health condition of the mother, even newborns with acute and chronic abnormalities are seen. Your girlfriend can experience malnutrition, genital diseases, hepatitis often present in heroin addicts, or pulmonary complications. The problem is that everything your girlfriend takes in, affects the fetus as well, so the drug is present in fetus as well and is conducting damage.
