Aim To examine the impact of smoking among females on controlled
ovarian stimulation (COS), at intra-cytoplasmatic sperm
injection (ICSI) outcome.
Methods A prospective analysis of outcomes of 876 women (fresh,
non donor cycles) of which 559 (63.8%) were non-smokers,
317 (36.2%) were smokers, underwent standard COS/ICSI treatment.

Results Among smokers, the average time of COS, expressed
in days, was significantly longer compared with non-smokers
(10.5±2.10 vs. 10±1.90 p<0, 05). There were no registered significant
differences in the number of retrieved oocytes, (10.4±6.8
vs10.3±6.9), mature oocytes (8.6±5.8 vs. 8.4±5.9), in the group
of non-smokers versus smokers. However, smoking and age have
a significant impact of the number of high-quality embryos, i.e.
older smokers had a lower number of high-quality transferred embryos
(non-smokers ≥ 35 years : smokers ≥ 35 years; 1.9±1.1 vs.
1.6±1). On multiple logistic regresion analysis, factor that had a
significantly negative impact of clinical pregnancy was maternal
Conclusion Smoking among patients entering the COS and ICSI
fertilization process had insignificant negative impact on the final
outcome of the process resulting in reduced pregnancy rate. The
chance for the pregnancy declines with age, but smoking did not
significantly influence the outcome.
Key words: in vitro fertilisation, high - quality embryos, clinical
pregnancy rate
