It’s no secret that smoking is detrimental to your health, so it should be no surprise that smoking can affect your fertility. If you are a smoker and planning to have a baby, the best thing you can do is stop before trying to get pregnant.

Effects of smoking on pregnancy– Not only decreasing fertility, smoking increases the risk of miscarriage and may even increase the risk of a tubal pregnancy. Smoking results in placental insufficiency, which may cause inadequate growth of the developing infant. Smoking is also associated with premature birth.


Do you know Smoking May Shorten Your Biological Clock:?

Some studies have shown that smoking can cause not only problems with fertility while you’re smoking, but lead to lowered fertility in the future.


Men produce new sperm throughout their lives, but women are born with all the eggs they will ever have. Once those eggs are damaged, there’s no going back. Smoking may decrease the total number of eggs a woman has in her ovaries and cause the ovaries to age prematurely.


Toxins in cigarettes may also lead to DNA damage to the ovarian follicles, where the eggs normally develop to maturity.


This premature aging of the ovaries and decrease in eggs may lead to earlier menopause, as much as four years earlier than normal.


Smoking can increase many fertility problems for women, including:

Affecting your eggs and causing ovulation problems, damaging your cervix and fallopian tubes Increasing risks for miscarriageand other problems during pregnancy and at birth

How Smoking Hurts Male Fertility:

Smoking damages sperm, making them less likely to fertilise eggs — and making the embryos they do manage to create less likely to survive. Smoking Degrades Sperm Protein Needed for Fertility, Embryo Survival.


Why Smokers’ Sperm Are Less Fertile: Male Fertility

Human sperm cells carry two tiny, highly charged proteins called protamine 1 and protamine 2. Nature keeps them in a perfectly balanced one-to-one relationship. But in smokers, sperm cells carry too little protamine 2. This imbalance makes them highly vulnerable to DNA damage.


The DNA alphabet of these sperm has one or two letters missing. And this cannot be repaired. When we inject these damaged sperm into an egg cell, the sperm is not capable of fertilising the cell. And even if it does, the [miscarriage] rate is very high.


We recommend couples seeking treatment for fertility to stop smoking at least three months before they attempt pregnancy or in vitro fertilisation. It’s a good idea to quit smoking before you even consider pregnancy.


Smoking also affects both male & female fertility. And even if only one member of a couple smokes, second-hand smoke tends to affect the fertility of his or her partner.
