How does Smoking Affect Fertility? ........!!

Smoking tobacco has a detrimental effect on the fertility of both women and men.


For women, it can result in reduced ovarian reserve and even bring on an early menopause - a real issue if you are an older woman trying to conceive. All female smokers face an increased risk of suffering a miscarriage or stillbirth.
For men,

  • Lower sperm count and sperm motility problems (motility is the ability of sperm to swim towards and penetrate the egg)
  • Hormonal issues
  • Erectile dysfunction - trouble getting or maintaining an erection

If your partner smokes, it is important to have a talk with him or her about quitting so that you can take that important step in improving your fertility and your partner’s fertility as well.
