Maternal smoking during pregnancy may lead to elevated rates of cryptorchidism in male offspring, which is a known risk factor for the future development of testicular cancer. Male offspring who were exposed to tobacco in utero may also suffer from impaired semen quality in adulthood, although the influence on fecundability is less clear.

Bottom line – please do all you can to quit smoking while pregnant.
