Hi Linda, Smoking marijuana

Hi Linda,

Smoking marijuana does lower a mans sperm count but it does not prevent him from getting you pregnant. If he has smoked for a long time then he may have a lower than average sperm count and that may be part of the problem. To say it is the problem - chances are there are more things going on that may contribute to you not getting pregnant such as stress.

Best of Luck,
