Yes, and no. Yes, cocaine can be passed through semen, but no, it would not show up on a standard drug test.

This is because the cocaine would be in such a small quantity (even for a heavy user) that it would have no effect on the other person or be enough to be detected in a test.

Can cocaine be passed through sperm?
  • Cocaine is an illegal alkaloid substance which is extracted from the coca plant.
  • The drug is a stimulant which acts as a appetite suppressant and a topical anaesthetic. When it has entered the body, cocaine acts as a serotonin-norepinephrine-dopamine re-uptake inhibitor.
  • Cocaine is absorbed primarily in the liver, with the drug having its most potent effects on the mesolimbic reward pathway in the brain.
  • The drug is metabolized in the liver and excreted in urine, so therefore it is unlikely that any sizeable trace would be found in semen.
  • If there was a chance that a trace of cocaine was in a man's semen, then the trace would be so minuscule that no test would be able to detect it.
  • Yes, cocaine has the potential to be passed through semen, but only in really small quantities.
  • No, it would not show up on a drug test.
