My question is does smoking effect conception? My husband and i have been trying to concieve since Oct. I have become pregnant once and M/C on my 8wk mark. Of course i quite smoking the minute i got a positive result at home which was a day before my period was do. But after my M/C i started smoking again. Now we have been trying since April which was one month after my M/C and we have had no luck. Of course i am working of quiting. Actually i am pretty much almost completly rid of the habbit except for occasionally. Any words of wisdom, does it effect my ability to concieve?

Yes. Smoking does contribute to low sperm count.

Smoking contributes to low sperm count and can contribute to m/c and the ability of not conceiving. It does more then you think - congrats on cutting back and good luck on conceiving!!!

Yes both male and female fertility is lowered by smoking.

Shopgrl01,sorry about your m/c. I had one back in Jan at 5 weeks. I was a smoker too but quit right away when I found out I was preg. Now I'm pregnant again at 15 weeks and I quit the day I found out. My husband still smokes but at least not around me or in the house! Have you tried taking pre natal vitamins? I tried this tea called "fertilitea". I'm not sure if it helped or not but I got pregnant after I started drinking it. The website's if you want to check it out. Best of luck :)

I dont think smoking effects you when ttc-my mom was a heavy smoker when she got pregnant with all four of her kids.The only thing is it is a hard habit to kick so i would just stop now so when you get that bfp you dont have to stress about quiting.GOODLUCK

I agree with marlene.. my boyfriend is a heavy smoker and i smoked a couple cigarettes a day and we got pregnant the second month trying. but maybe it depends on the person. anyhow, im sorry about your m/c. i hope everythig goes well in the future :)

Not only does it reduce your chances, it INCREASES the chances of having an ectopic pregnany - nasty, nasty... I was a smoker, got pregnant and it was ectopic - dr said it was because of smoking. Little known fact... Now I am down to one side. My right tube ruptured and had to be removed. Quit now - you'll be better for it...
