Our expert says:
There seems to be some association between an ectopic pregnancy and smoking however there is no direct cause and effect relationship between the two. However it is important that you try and stop smoking if you are trying to conceive, as smoking in pregnancy itself might be detrimental to the baby. The more likely reason why ectopic pregnancies occurs, if there are damage to the fallopian tubes or it’s surrounding structures.
