Secondhand Smoke

If you have started down the ttc (trying to conceive) path, you probably already know that smoking during pregnancy can be harmful to your baby. But did you know that secondhand smoke can keep you from becoming pregnant?
In a study done by the University of Rochester Medical Center, they found that secondhand smoke is indeed harmful to those ttc. They began by collecting data from 5000 different women who were non-smokers. Of that group, those that had been around secondhand smoke for at least 6 hours a day as children or adults were 68% more likely to struggle with infertility issues or suffer from miscarriages.
Makes you think about those who grew up in homes with parents who smoked. I wonder how many of them are currently struggling with infertility now as an adult?
