Tabacco smoking can affect your reproductive system

World health days


If you think smoking can only risk your heart or lungs – You are wrong

Many of us do not realize that smoking can also lead to fertility problems in women and men. It also increases the risk of erectile dysfunction and pregnancy complications.

In Women:

Smoking cigarettes have negative health effects on fertility, making it harder to conceive for women. Research shows that smoking can reduce fertility as it negatively affects hormone production.

There is an increased risk of an ectopic pregnancy (where the embryo implants outside the uterus), which can threaten the mother’s life.

Smoking while you are pregnant can also lead to health problems that can affect both mother and baby. Pregnant women who smoke are at higher risk of complications like:

  • The placenta may start to develop in the wrong place (placenta previa), or it may split too soon from the uterus (placental abruption). These issues could result in severe bleeding, an early delivery (premature birth), or other complications during pregnancy, some of which may necessitate an emergency C-section surgery.
  • Premature births and low birth-weight babies
  • Miscarriages and stillbirths
  • Having a child with a cleft lip, cleft palate, and possibly other birth defects
  • Moms' who smoke while pregnant, their babies are more likely to die from sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) during and after pregnancy

In Men

Smoking can cause damage to blood vessels throughout the body. Male erections rely on blood flow in the penis. Men who smoke are more prone to erectile dysfunction. This danger grows as people smoke more and for longer periods of time.

Smoking can also affect sperm, lead to sperm death, or increase the number of abnormal sperms which can reduce fertility.
