Has anyone gotten pregnant if your partner smokes ???
My husband and I have been trying for 7 months but nothing we are both young I'm 21 and he is 22, anyways I think that the main reason why I haven't gotten pregnant is because he smokes a lot of cigarette, has anyone gotten pregnant fast even if your husband smokes more than 10 cigarettes a day??? And if so how long did it take to conceive, I'm desperate at this point we want a baby so badly we even have a nursery set up but every month is just another disappointment :(

It just depends on the couple.  My hub smokes a pack or more a day and we conceived the first month we tried.  
An average healthy couple can take past a year to get conceive.  Especially if you aren't tracking your ovulation, ect.

Thank you :) but I have been tracking my ovulation days and we plan the right times to make love but we are both just getting frustrated to the point where we are starting to blame one another and I know that's not healthy but it just feel like I should be pregnant already we have an appointment with our doctor to check is everything is ok down there with me and he is going to a fertility clinic to get a sperm test

Really? My husband is a smoker, there is nothing I can do for him to quit before we started ttc, and now it seems is impossible to convence him, it's an addiction and I don't expect him to quit for one day to another I get it, but I even more frustrated than you, since we are ttc for almost 3 years and nothing happens, 7 months is nothing!, and believe me, you guys are a lot younger than us, to make the story short, this Sunday I am going for my second IUI, and I just hope is a successful one, but I don't blame him, he doesn't blame me, we just have hope and hope, the reason I don't blame him it is because he has a daughter with her ex wife and guess what?, they both were smokers! And still they managed to get pregnant and not only with him!, after they got divorce! This smoker women have 4 more children with another guy!,  i am saying this, because I want you to understand that long time ago everybody used to smoke, and yes! For some reason people still got pregnant all the time! Think about it! Thanks god i don't smoke, bit it seems that isn't helping at all.

Well, my hubby smokes a lot and the. First time we tried we got pregnant with our little lady :) Now I'm pregnant again and it took us around 4 months :) But like the above post said it can take up to a year... but I notice as more I enjoyed sex (not just thought about getting pregnant) the sooner it happen... at least for me that's how it works when I put too much of my mind into making babies instead of being with a hubby the harder it is...idk lol

Aw.:-(
maybe you guys need to just stop trying.  Not like, actually STOP, but take a breather.  Stop tracking your cycles, take down the nursery, and just do it to do it!  When you try to hard out can actually backfire.  You guys are young enough that there's no reason you should be pressuring yourself so much.
My hub and I got pregnant by just going on a date night, drinking a bit to much at the local bar, and just having fun when we got home.  Our goal in our heads at that moment wasn't."have a baby" even though we were going to try.  It was "lets have fun!!!"
Maybe you guys just need to try and have fun :-).  I just don't want you guys to end up in divorce because you're putting way to much stress on having a baby, instead of having fun as a couple to make the baby.  I have three friends that have ended their marriage because of that very reason.:-(

So sad!, believe me sometimes, I am very tempting to blame my husband! Since he is a smoker and wouldn't stop!, then I think about it and say to myself "no pressures " if God it is going to bless me good for me! But if nothing happens, at least I have a man that love me so much! And that it is really hard to find!

Both my hubby & I smoked over a pack each and I got pregnant within three months. We weren't trying though, but I'm glad we did, because we both quit smoking!

It took a friend of mine a little over a year to conceive and they both smoked a pack or more a day. I don't even smoke and neither did my hubby and it took us like a little over 2 years. But we weren't even trying when it happened it was a surprise for both of us, like you we were trying so hard and I couldn't take it anymore do we kinda started the "of it happens, it will happen" concept.

Idk what the medical studies are on it but I've heard the man smoking cigarettes can deform the sperm making it difficult to penetrate the egg and the woman smoking thins out your uterus. Idk though cause my husband and I both smoked a pack a day sometimes more and we got pregnant. I mean we went months not using protection. One week of him staying the night( we got married after I was pregnant) and we got pregnant lol just happened to be the right time of the month AND right before payday so he was outta cigarettes and.not smoking as much.
Anyway so IDK but it didn't affect us. Just stop trying to.get Prego and enjoy it :) you could be stressing your body out by trying too hard and focusing on it too much.

I'm over weight and my partner smoked alot at the time, took us about 6 months to get pregnant, but we weren't going out off our way to try. If it happened, it did if it didn't, well it didn't. Maybe you guys just need to take a step back and make it for fun again. Goodluck!

i smoked when i got pregnant with my daughter and her dad smoked a lot of weed, some ciggs, and drank a lot of mountain dew (lol). we got pregnant after four months. we werent trying to and we were actually on the verge of breaking up because our relationship was going no where.  my daughter is four now and her dad and i arent together and he has 4 or 5 kids all together, i stopped counting.  every one is different.  making a baby shouldnt be a chore.  dont think about it too much, itll happen when you least expect it! im ttc as well so good luck to ya!

My fiance smokes cigarettes and we r pregnant. We kept trying and we just kept getting stressed out so I stopped keeping track of when I ovulate and just went with the flow of things and it helped not stressing over it I stopped coming to forms and everything and 4 months later it happened. We have our first appointment today.

Well the healthier a woman is typically the easier it is for her to get pregnant. It would be a good idea for him to quite smoking either way as it is just as bad for you to be around 2nd hand smoke while pregnant as it is to smoke yourself...and a newborn definitely shouldn't be around cigarette smoke either. Plus, it couldn't hurt your attempts to conceive if he quite and it would only benefit everyone's heath :) Not to mention his wallet! lol

If this is too difficult, maybe he could cut back as much as possible and only smoke outside away from your living environment.

Thank you ladies for the responses it gave me alot of hope I think the best thing to do it take the nursery down and put it in storage for now, I guess my hubby has his man cave back again and we will stop trying it will be less stress on me and on him and less stress means less cigarettes lol thank you for all the responses I very much appreciate it and for those that are pregnant congratulations :)

This is a bad example but...me and my boyfriend have been together for four years and we were never protected. We did the naughty quite often to. We didn't smoke..didn't drink and were both healthy..not fit..but healthy. I wanted a baby. So everytime we did it I thought of baby making techniques. when  I went on vacation I said screw it and me and the befriend got drunk. im now 8 Weeks pregnant.i don't even remember that night..but I think I was to gone to even think about making a baby lol don't give up..but have fun while doing it...litterly

Hi,

I am ovulating today as i did the LH surge strip tests and got 2 lines (15th dec and 16th dec). I had sex with partner once on the evening of the 12th dec and once on the evening 13th dec so technically 3 and 2 days before ovulation? could there be a good chance of being pregnant? he works away so i wont see him until next week now so these were the only times we could! i also stayed lying down for about 20 minutes afterwards both times. However there were leaks on both occasions and i dont think this can be avoided. both times was the missionary position when he ejaculated and he stayed inside me for a few minutes after he ejaculated (both times). could i be pregnant?? i came off the pill in august however i am a smoker and so is he? could this be a problem? i am really hoping that i am pregnant, what are the chances? can anyone advise??? thank you
