Trying to Conceive
I'm going to be 31 and we are starting to try this month to get pregnant. After reading up on fertility I found a few things that concerned me. First, I was a light smoker for almost 15 years. It got a bit heavier in college but then I slowed down and only smoke when i have cocktails. Has this affected my fertility? Does it return to normal after I quit? Also, as a college grad and a girl that fully enjoyed her youth I did tend to binge drink for years (weekends) particularly in my 20's. Does this affect my fertility? Again if I stop does it return to normal? I'm just very worried about all these things and would like to know if anyone had similar experiences and how trying to conceive went for them? 1 Amrita

Hello! Amrita. According to my view, I don't think smoking can effect fertility but smoking during pregnancy may affect you baby. I would like to suggest you to try for conceive for some time. I think you will get success. 2 Ankita

I am also trying to conceive. I never listened that smokers cannot become parents. Some of my friends are also smokers. They quit when they were pregnant. Nothing negative happened to them. Try to find out more reasons. As you can have hormonal issues. Also if you have an abortion history. I abort one of my children. But now I am not getting pregnant again. This is really heartbroken for me. I want to pursue my career that is the reason. I am now planning for surrogacy. 3 Alexcade

Hello dear. I hope you are doing good. I know your situation. You better stop smoking and drinking alcohol. Cigarettes and alcohol are not good for fertility and pregnancy. But that does not mean a smoker can not get pregnant. It's good you run a healthy lifestyle today. When you quit smoking and also drink alcohol may be a little help your condition better. You should consult with your doctor. The doctor will give some advice to you. Maybe you will get some vitamins. Don't forget to do sports. I hope this helps you a little. Sure you can have a child. Good luck 4 brylia39

Well dear, I am very much shocked to learn about this. Even though smoking and drinking don't affect fertility, women who smoke or drink, don't make good mothers. Secondly, try not to go back to these habits ever again. Now let me begin. All the best to you and I hope your result is positive. I have been infertile for over 12 years and I know the value of children and pregnancy. Make sure you consult your doctor. He can tell you when you are ovulating. If you try on the day you are ovulating, you have a good chance. If however, you are concerned, it won't be wrong to visit a fertility clinic. And if God forbid, it turns out that you can't conceiev dont panic. Start the treatment earnestly. My tion is rare and currently has no cure. But your case might be different Anyways, good luck. 5 Selina Dylan

hey amrita smokers take longer to conceive than non-smokers and are more likely to have fertility problems. Women who smoke or are exposed to other people's smoke Ė have an increased risk of infertility and are more likely to take longer to get pregnant. 7 mindy mowrey

It is the only thing I want after I have been through so much I got cancer and of course overcoming a tumor is none other than a miracle but for that I had my ovaries removed my marriages fall apart just because I could not conceive how I wish I could give up my life for having a child I pray to God every night to make my this wish come true if he will give me child it would be like the whole world has been given to me but right all I want a solution which helps me to end my infertility is there any solution any treatment you guys know about please guide me I just want an answer to help me out in this worst situation of my life it is so hard for me to come up with this case if you could offer me any assistance I would be very grateful to you. 8 Isabel

Hi there. How are you? Look; let me tell you what, unhealthy diet and alcohol is not good for anything. No good for reproductive system or for any organ. I am quite concerned for you too. Smoking cigarettes is perhaps the No. 1 reason of unfavorable outcomes for babies. Babies born prematurely, babies born too small, babies who die before they can be born at all. In contrast, pregnancies would be safer and babies would be better if pregnant smokers could someway change their routine before they are identified a grave disease such as diabetes or high blood pressure. Cigarette smoke includes more than 4,000 chemicals, including truthfully spiteful components such as cyanide, lead, and at least 60 cancer-causing compounds. When you smoke in pregnancy, that toxic infuse into your bloodstream, your baby's lone resource of oxygen and nutrients. Whilst none of those 4,000-plus chemicals is good for your baby, two ingredients are particularly injurious: nicotine and carbon monoxide. These two toxins account for approximately each smoking-related impediment in pregnancy. The most grave impediments Ė counting stillbirth, premature delivery, and low birth weight Ė can be added up to the truth that nicotine and carbon monoxide work jointly to diminish your baby's supply of oxygen. Nicotine throttles off oxygen by contraction blood vessels all through your body, counting the ones in the umbilical cord. It's a small force your baby to respire through a thin straw. To craft matters bad, the red blood cells that hold oxygen begin to pick up molecules of carbon monoxide as an alternative. Abruptly, that thin straw doesn't even hold a large amount oxygen as it ought to be. I was asked whether I was an addict of smoking before undergoing my fertility treatment in clinic ďBioTexComĒ. I was advised strictly not to smoke; otherwise I would have grave outcomes. Hope the best for you. Nancy!! 11 Nancy

Hello, but you must understand that your periodic smoking and alcoholic cocktails are not the most important cause of infertility. And if you stop smoking and drinking alcoholic cocktails, then this will undoubtedly have a positive effect on your body. But, of course, this will not solve the problem of infertility. You are still very young and it is important for you not to miss your chance. You need to think about conceiving a child with IVF or a surrogacy. While you are young, I hope your eggs are still suitable for fertilization. You need to find a good doctor and a clinic. Then the doctor will tell you about those options that will be really effective for you. And if you wait that the problem of infertility is solved if you give up smoking and alcohol, then you simply lose time. But, of course, if you want to have a healthy baby, then smoking and alcohol are your enemies. Since smoking and alcohol have a negative effect on the condition of the oocytes. It seems to me that you need to solve your problem more seriously. Because time goes fast enough. Now you are 31 years old, and you think that everything is still ahead. But not always the attempts of IVF end successfully. In addition, they require additional preparation. 12 silvi

Hello, nice meeting you here. I donít think that someone here will answer your question for sure. If you really want to know if you are healthy enough, you should talk to your doctor. After all the tests and examinations you will find out if you are able to carry a baby. I know a lot of women, who were smoking for years and they have healthy kids now. I have never been smoking or drinking alcohol, but after the first delivery I was diagnosed to be infertile. Thatís why we never know for sure what is going on. Take a good care of yourself and you will be fine. There are a lot of clinics, which offer fertility examinations. Go and visit one of them if you want to make sure that you are fine. It wonít take much time. But it will help you to calm down. And, of course, keep ttc. You will get pregnant when the right time comes. Good luck. 13 amazingbear

Everything is fine if your eggs are still valid. To figure it out you have to visit your doctor. You will have to go through all the necessary examinations. After that you will know for sure if you have a chance to get pregnant naturally. I believe thereís a chance that you are fine. Well, in case if your eggs are invalid, you will be offered to use the donor eggs. Unfortunately, it means that the baby born wonít be genetically related to you. But you will become a mother and it is the main thing ever. A lot of women use donor eggs and they have healthy kids. Just try to find a good clinic. There are a lot of medical centers, which offer this service. You seem to be a good person. I wish you good luck on your way. Stay positive and you will succeed soon. Hope, your husband is supporting you. 14 luckymy

My granny was the heaviest smoker and drinking as a dirty pig during whole his long life and he by the way had 8 children officially. And no one among them was infertile or had any problems with reproductive system. Thereís only my suffering from infertility in my large family. And this is a bloody paradox and injustice. I think your harmful habits couldnít affect your body in such a high extent. Sometimes itís better to forgive ourselves because we suffer mostly from disorders of our nature by itself. And we cope with it as maximally as itís possible 15 toytoo

Hello honey! I wish you to get success during you TTC. I think the way of smoking you mentioned canít harm your fertility. I myself never smoked. Anyway Iím infertile like a desert. Today Iím happy to have my children beside me. They arenít actually the fruit of my fertility. They were born via ART. 16 Gallas

I donít know why god sends this curse to people. Iíve been paying hard but it didnít work. I asked for me, for other peopleÖ I raised my hands to the heaven but I got happy due to the science. Perhaps nowadays we should be closer to contemporary knowledge. I wish to pass this way with no difficulties. Good luck! 17 Gallas
