HI!
If you were my patient, I would be strongly inclined to offer you the option of a hystersalpingogram (dye study of the uterus and fallopian tubes) and/or a laparoscopy to check things in there.  I would be concerned about scar tissue from the accident causing infertility.  Cigarette smoking may reduce fertility, but usually doesn't delay pregnancy for 5 years.
Good luck!
