Women who smoke have an accelerated development of clinically detectable diminished ovarian reserve. Additionally, the fact that women who smoke cigarettes with normal ovarian reserve have ovarian responses and PRs that are equivalent to age-matched nonsmoking controls suggests that diminished ovarian reserve may be a principal mechanism reducing fecundity among women who smoke cigarettes.
