Effects of tobacco on male fertility

Male smokers may see their fertility affected by a reduction in seminal quality, especially in the concentration and mobility of spermatozoa. In addition, smoking can also cause certain hormonal imbalances, as well as alterations in spermatogenesis, sperm maturation and sperm function.

On the other hand, increased oxidative stress in smokers leads to increased sperm DNA fragmentation.

Finally, smoking has also been associated with an increased risk of erectile dysfunction.
