Smoking doesn’t affect my fertility
Using tobacco frequently affects both male and female gametes as they decrease the quality of sperm or ovum. Smoking as few as five cigarettes per day is associated with lower fertility rates in men and women. If you’re trying to conceive, it is best to discontinue all tobacco products.
There is nothing I can do to stop “the clock.”
Yes, women have menopause, and they become infertile after a certain age. But because of advancement in medical science, you can freeze your ovum and be pregnant at any age.
Abstaining from sex provides more potent sperm
Abstinence does not increase your chance of conceiving. Stored, older sperm is more likely to be damaged and lower your chance of conception. It is best to keep the male system flushed every one to two days to ensure sperm are fresh and of the highest possible quality.
