Smokers And Pregnancy

 

 

Women who are heavy smokers are most likely to either have problems getting pregnant, or, are more likely to have multiple births. That is the recent finding by researchers at a Care Fertility Group in Spain and Portugal.

The researchers found that tobacco affects the lining of the uterus in a different way among different women. In some, it makes the lining more receptive to egg implantation, and in others, less receptive.

So.......... if you have been wanting a baby and haven't been successful, and smoke more than 10 cigarettes a day, you might consider stopping smoking.
