Influence of cigarette smoking on spermatozoa via seminal plasma
Evidence that cigarette smoking affects male fertility via altering the sperm quality is provided, indicating removal of SM's SP and then subsequent reconstitution with physiological media could be of clinical significance in the various assisted reproductive technologies applied for SM.
Smoking and sperm viability--a never-ending story.
Does cigarette smoking affect seminal fluid parameters? A comparative study.
Cigarette smoking has a deleterious effect on some of the seminal fluid parameters (motility, morphology and leukocyte count) which in turn may result in male subfertility.
Study on Effect of Cigarette Smoking on Semen Quality of Infertile Men
Cigarette smoking adversely affects Sperm motility and vitality and in turn semen quality, and this effect was significantly decreased in accordance with the severity of smoking.
Evaluation of Effect of Cigarette Smoking on Vital Seminal Parameters which Influence Fertility.
Cigarette smoking was found to have a detrimental effect on both the sperm motility and the sperm count, but the effect on sperm Motility was greater than that of sperm count.
The effects of L-carnitine on sperm parameters in smoker and non-smoker patients with idiopathic sperm abnormalities
The results of this study indicate that smoker patients should not be excluded from the treatment with L-carnitine based on smoking alone and significantly improved percentile of motile and grade A sperms in non-smokers.
Cigarette smoking impairs sperm bioenergetics.

The rate of sperm respiration was significantly lower in smokers, and this negative impact of cigarette smoking on sperm aerobic metabolism may, in part, explain the lower rate of fertility in smokers.

Comparison of semen quality was undertaken between 60 smoking and 50 non‐smoking men attending infertility investigation, finding no correlation was found in percentage of sperm with morphologically abnormal heads, midpieces or tails.
