Dear xxxxxxxxxx
Thanks for follow up.

Although reversal of complete harmful effects of smoking takes place over years but you can attempt fathering a child only after three months of complete abstinence.

Regarding electronic cigarettes yes they are again harmful but the effects are very low in compare to regular smoking aids.


I hope this clarifies further.
Thanks and regards.

Dear xxxxxxxxxx,
Thanks for follow up.

Although there is limited literature about harmful effects of e cigarettes but they also have almost similar pattern of harm profile like regular cigarettes. I mean to say that yes the sexual ill effects are there with e cigarettes but in milder form.

I hope this helps you further.
