Male Smokers and Fertility
What We Know about Smoking and a Woman’s Fertility
It is well accepted that smoking is detrimental to ovarian function and female fertility. Smoking has been shown to be toxic to ovarian follicles and eggs, demonstrating a direct correlation between smoking and decline in fertility.
Excessive smoking is linked to the premature onset of diminished ovarian reserve (loss of eggs from the ovary) which leads to a decline in fertility.
