The verdict is still out on this one. Some people say that the active ingredient in marijuana (THC) lowers testosterone levels, which may decrease sperm counts. Others say that pot can disrupt a woman's ovulation. But there hasn't been any solid or convincing scientific research that proves either way whether smoking marijuana affects fertility in men or women.

Even though there's no evidence that pot can harm your chances of conception, it's a risk you don't want to take. If you've recently smoked marijuana, wait a month or so after your last hit before trying to conceive. It'll take at least a month to get all traces of the drug out of your system.

But the best reason to give up drugs now is that partying and pregnancy don't mix. Several studies have indicated that regular use of marijuana can cause birth defects and inadequate fetal growth. Plus, marijuana isn't manufactured legally, so you never know what you're getting. It may be contaminated with other drugs or herbicides that could place your baby-to-be at even greater risk. The bottom line: When it comes to smoking marijuana while trying to get pregnant, just say no.
