The Safety Of Tobacco Cigarettes With Electric Cigarettes?
Hello doctor, my husband and I are running a pregnant program, my husband was advised by a doctor not to smoke and had stopped smoking for 3 years and switched to e-cigarettes, but I haven’t been pregnant yet. Are e-cigarettes as dangerous as regular cigarettes? Does my husband have to really not smoke so I can get pregnant quickly?
Hello Anita Sari, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Previously, I will try to answer your question, Dr. Rio.
Infertility is not pregnant after at least one year of sexual intercourse at least four times a week without contraception. Primary infertility means the wife has never been pregnant at all, while the secondary wife has never been pregnant but not pregnant - pregnant afterwards.
There are several factors for infertility, namely:
Sperm problems (ejaculation factors, number, movement, sperm quality) current / past sexually transmitted infections. Parasitic infections (Toxoplasma, rubella, citomegalo virus). Excessive stress. Poor nutrition. Excessive alcohol and cigarettes. In several studies mention that nicotine consumption can affect infertility in men, but for the use of e-cigarettes is still minimal research. But as we know, both conventional and electric cigarettes have the same nicotine content, although the amount is different. What I recommend to you guys is to do a pregnancy program by minimizing the factors that can influence the infertility above.
Apart from that, routinely control your obstetrician to monitor the pregnancy program, many ask questions about the program. To increase the knowledge and success of your program.
Right now what you can do is:
Live the program as well as possible, stop everything that threatens failure to get pregnant, including consumption of nicotine. Do not be consumed by marketing e-cigarette products that say that cigarettes are completely safe, look for scientific evidence that supports the statement. Get enough rest and eat highly nutritious foods to increase the fertility of you and your husband. Do check sperm quality, infection factors above if you have not done. Consult your obstetrician regularly about the problem. Thank you, hopefully this can answer your questions.
Good luck in the pregnancy program :)
