Dear Jhonny Samera
Jatropha leaves effects has contradictive evidence. It can develop the fetus in pregnant women but it also induces an abortion and may lead to death.
Better is that you should avoid its use and clarify us about what kind of Disease you want to cure.

Yes, you can drink it. This herb acts as a strong pain killer. You can have it to suppress your back pain. But, please note, it is not a permanent cure for back ache. For that you will have to share other symptoms as well .
Also, please share if you ever have experienced a back injury .

Please, let the disease take its course. DO not try to interfere it.
Your babies would be okay in time. It is a bad idea to try interrupt, when your child is already affected and so many days have already passed. By 6th or 7th May, he/she would be okay. Do not worry. Or, talk to your family doctor about it.
