  • Its been proven in scientific studies that smoking a lot will effect sperm count and mobility. http://alcoholism.about.com/cs/pot/a/blub031013.htm However you have to smoke a lot, and regularly for the effect to really be felt. The bigger question here is... if he's doing illegal substances why are you trying to get pregnant? In most states if they catch you doing illegal drugs (yes even pot) they will take the children in the house away, no if ands or buts. Immediately. I would seriously ask myself if he is willing to give up the habit completely before attempting to worry about his sperm count.

  • Emuu, my husband has alot of medical issues so the doctors gave him a pot card. If he was to get pulled over he shows the cops that and nothing happens. Now if he was selling it would be a different story but hes not.
    I can understand some people wouldnt be with pot smokers, but am i really supposed to leave a guy i love and gave my life to because he has medical issues.
