  • Well, my mother was a heavy smoker and she had 8 kids......I was never a smoker and I got pregnant 5 times USING birth control each time......I'm thinking smoking doesn't have an effect on GETTING pregnant.....however, the other effects on your health and that of the baby and those around you should be considered.

  • I was a smoker. It took six months to get pregnant. But I had also been on the pill for ten year prior. I think it took so long because my CM wasn't so fertile in the beginning. I had to take Evening Primrose Oil and Vit E to help---it worked and I got pregnant the next month. Anyway, I had heard that smoking can cause issues with fertile CM, but so can being on the pill for ten years, so I don't know. DH is also a smoker. Plus we both smoke pot, which is also supposed to affect TTCing. I stopped with no problems once I did get pregnant.
