Can a child have a birth defect if conceived when drunk?

if you get pregnant when drunk and both parents are drunk can the kid have problems? just wondering!

Alcohol would affect the development, but when conception happens it normally takes a day or so for the egg to implant, so it won't really be exposed to the alcohol in the mother's system. The father being drunk doesn't matter, though I believe alcoholism lowers sperm count.

No, but no more drinking until you find out if you're pregnant. You should consider using protection.

it's possible, but not highly likely. I think it's about 1 in 50 if both parents are drunk. if one is drunk, not sure.
