Cigarette smoke linked to in-fertility

Cigarette smoke linked to in-fertilityThe three-year study examined the effect that three chemicals found in cigarettes had on ovarian development and egg fertilization.

It found females who were exposed to the toxins through cigarette smoke during the early stages of life could experience a reduction in the quality and number of their eggs, Professor Eileen McLaughlin from the University of Newcastle said.

"We believe that exposure to these toxins as a foetus dramatically reduces egg quality and quantity before birth and that this reduced fertility may be passed on to the next generation," Prof McLaughlin said today.

"It means that if your grandmother smoked - either while pregnant with your mother or near her when she was a baby - you and possibly your children may be at risk of reduced fertility."

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
