Smoking and assisted reproduction

When a woman who smokes starts an assisted reproduction treatment, she should be aware that the response of her ovaries to hormonal stimulation may be lower, which leads to the use of a higher dose of hormones. However, the number of oocytes obtained after ovarian puncture tends to be lower if the woman is a smoker.

In addition, smoking by the patient could increase the rate of cancelled cycles, as well as lead to worse clinical pregnancy and live birth rates.
