Possibly: Smoking causes blood vessels to contract and decreases oxygen flow to the tissues. When this happens in the testicles, it can decrease sperm production and thus possible fertility. As you age, it could also affect erectile function, so this in turn could lead to fertility problems as well.

Effects are limited: Drugs taken to increase the chances of pregnancy can result in multiples in that pregnancy however, the number of babies depends on many things such as the type and dose of drugs and a woman's response to them. Also doctors cannot predict with certainty the number of babies born if fertility drugs were taken because an embryo might not develop in some cases. High-order multiple gestation is rare.
