Smoking damages fertility

It’s common knowledge that smoking cigarettes is bad for your health.  Typically, anti-smoking public service announcements focus on the negative pulmonary and vascular effects of smoking.

However, recent research has implicated cigarette smoke in causing infertility.

Below is a list of effects that experts believe results from exposure to cigarette smoke:

  • Damage to the cervix and fallopian tubes;
  • DNA damage to eggs;
  • Increase in miscarriage and ectopic pregnancies;
  • Early menopause due to premature aging of the ovary;
  • Maternal smoking may damage fetal ovaries.

Most experts believe that cessation of smoking can reverse these effects.  Therefore, it’s never too late to quit!
