Risks of smoking
Smoking can hurt a developing fetus, but lighting up can also drastically affect a woman's chances of getting pregnant in the first place. Smoking causes up to 13% of all infertility cases, according to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine. (One 2014 study even found that a woman's smoking may affect the fertility of her sons.)
Cigarette smoke disrupts hormones and damages DNA in both men and women, says Dr. Arredondo. "And it doesn't have to be heavy smoking, either," he says. "Even women who smoke moderately or who are exposed to secondhand smoke have disrupted endocrine function and can experience significant fertility issues."
In the long term, smokers are at greater risk of blood cancer (leukemia). There's a risk to nonsmokers, too. Breathing secondhand smoke has an immediate effect on the cardiovascular system. Exposure to secondhand smoke increases your risk of stroke, heart attack, and coronary heart disease.
It is one of the causes for various health problems. We are talking about Infertility
Fact 1: Cigarette smoking can cause infertility.
Smokers are more likely to have fertility problems than nonsmokers. If you smoke for many years, or smoke many cigarettes per day, your risk for fertility problems is increased.
When you smoke, more than 7000 chemicals spread throughout your entire body and all of your organs. This can lead to fertility problems, including the following:
Ovulation problems
Genetic issues
Damage to your reproductive organs
Damage to your eggs or premature menopause.
Increased risk of cancer and increased risk of miscarriage
In addition, smokers that try fertility treatments tend to take longer to get pregnant. Smokers are also more likely to give birth to babies with health problems.
Fact 2: Secondhand smoke can affect your fertility.
If you live with a smoker, encourage your loved one to stop. Secondhand smoke exposes you to poisonous chemicals, affecting your fertility. In fact, fertility experts say that secondhand smoke is almost as damaging to your fertility as if you were smoking yourself! Exposure to cigarette smoke for even just a few days can affect your health and your fertility.
Secondhand smoke is also a known cause of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). If you do become pregnant, you and your partner must stop smoking to protect the health of your baby.
Fact 3: Smoking increases the chance of miscarriage
The pain of miscarriage can be devastating. Due to the toxins from cigarettes, smokers are more likely to suffer from miscarriage than nonsmokers. In addition, smoking increases several health risks during pregnancy, such as preterm labor and ectopic pregnancy.
Despite these warnings, millions of women of childbearing age still continue to smoke. By doing so, they risk their own health and the health of their babies.
Fact 4: Smoking causes fertility problems for men.
Men that smoke cigarettes are at an increased risk for the following male fertility problems:
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 you are trying to get pregnant without success and your partner smokes, encourage him to quit. The sooner he quits, the sooner you may be able to conceive.
Fact 5: Stop smoking to increase your chances of getting pregnant.
Fertility often improves for women after they stop smoking. Studies show that female smokers can increase their chances of conceiving by quitting at least two months before trying to get pregnant.
I advise every one to quit this health killing habit and protect your health.....Brought to you
