According to the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, 1/3 of infertility cases are attributable to women. 1/3 is attributable to men and the remaining 1/3 to combined infertility or unexplained causes. Find out below about how smoking can directly lead to infertility.

Introduction of infertility

Experts in reproduction and infertility consider any male or female or couple infertile if they are under the age of 34, have not used contraceptive and have tried to conceive for a period of 12 months. If the female is above the age of 35 and has not conceived after a period of 6 months of contraceptive-free intercourse or if a female is incapable of carrying a pregnancy to term, it may be termed infertility.

Causes of infertility in males

The main cause of infertility in males is low sperm count or volume. Sperm production is affected due to hormonal problems in the testicles or pituitary gland, treatment of cancer with chemotherapy or radiation and several other factors. Sometimes genetic problems also play a part. Diabetes and thyroid also cause infertility in men suffering from them. Ejaculation problems such as blocked ejaculation and retrograde ejaculation also play a pivotal role in infertility. Klinefelter syndrome or problems in chromosomes cause infertility too.

Causes of infertility in females

The fertility rate of women is affected by age. Other conditions that lead to infertility in women are pelvic inflammatory disease, ovulation difficulties, diabetes, thyroid disorders, liver problems, kidney disease, problems in the fallopian tube, uterus and cervix and endometriosis (a disorder in the female reproductive organs). Less well-known factors that can lead to infertility in women are excess weight gain or weight loss.

Environmental and lifestyle factors responsible for infertility

Certain lifestyle factors such as smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa, rigorous exercises and taking undue physical stress can lead to infertility. Environmental factors such as exposure to toxins like glues, volatile organic solvents, silicones, physical agents, chemical dusts and pesticides also contribute to infertility.

Relations between smoking and infertility

Smoking is not only dangerous for your heart and respiratory organs but also your reproductive functions. Smoking or consumption of substances that contain tobacco reduces sperm production in men and affects the quality of eggs in women, causing infertility in the course of time. Smoking also decreases the production of testosterone in men, thereby causing impotence. Smoking in women causes changes in the cervical mucous, which prevents the sperm reaching the egg and induces infertility.

Women want to look attractive to men, and often go to great lengths to do so, but a lot of the time they are focusing on the wrong things. Many women think that men are solely focused on having the perfect figure, long shiny hair, and a perfect face. Physical attraction IS important, but it is not the most important thing to most men. In fact, you may be surprised at where it ranks, and how many more things play into what a man is looking for in a long term relationship.

* Great Personality.

The ability to win a man over and put him at ease is one of the most important things that men look for. Remember we like to approach you, but if you give off signals that make you approachable you make our jobs a whole lot easier.

* An appreciation for humor.

Men love to be with someone they can laugh with and someone who genuinely thinks that they are funny. If you get his jokes and laugh at them it is a huge plus, and it is even better if you can make jokes about yourself.


This is the ability to be yourself. Guys don’t like women who pretend to be divas and princesses. We want women who are down to earth and who know themselves.

* Dependability.

This is simply the ability to follow through on your word. Do what you say you are going to do, so that we know we can count on you.

* Good at listening.

A lot of girls that we know only know how to talk about themselves, and while we are happy to hear what you have to say, it is important that you can listen too. Men like a woman who can thoughtfully listen and give them good feedback.

* Being independent.

Having your own skills and abilities that your man can be proud of is huge. It is important for men that there girlfriends and wives make them proud in front of family and friends and having a woman who can rely on her man, but also on herself is a huge part of that.

* Looks.

It is true that men appreciate beautiful women, but I want you to notice where looks is on this list. Looks are important to guys, but we are looking for a woman who takes care of herself more than anything else. We do want her to be lighter than us, and usually shorter than us, but she doesn’t have to be a supermodel. In fact, most guys I know prefer real women over super models any day.

Enhance your natural attractiveness and confidence (and confidence is attractive) by using perfumes with pheromones.
