Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that:
Smoking tends to have minor effects on ferility when you are young.  In most cases fertility beats smoking, so your chances, at your age, with everything else being normal are excellent. You might want to ask your ob doctor about one of the newer aids to quit smoking, such as Chantix.It is an excellent idea to quit smoking BEFORE becoming pregnant!
Good luck!
