Hi,
Thanks for the query.

It is very good thing that you quit the tobacco.
After quitting of tobacco you can have symptoms of nicotine withdrawal.
These will present usually as dizziness, depression, mood changes, decreased sleep, head ache, tiredness etc.
These symptoms may last to few days to few weeks.
But with progression of time this symptoms will surely decrease.
You can continue the nicotine replacement product you are taking.
As nicotine can affect fertility by causing changes in cervical mucus, affecting the ovulation etc, by quitting it definitely the chances of conception will increase.
And can also risks in pregnancy like miscarriage, still birth, preterm birth etc can be prevented.
By taking some steps IVF failure can be prevented to some extent, for more details: http://srsree.blogspot.in/2012/06/possible-causes-of-ivf-failure-and.html
