Probably not: Your husband would like to cut back, like all smokers. Don't nag or criticize. Consider joining a fitness program or exercising together. Most important right now is maintaining a loving marriage, emphasizing what's good and what you love about each other. This will help more than any magic. Your family physicain can help with smoking cessation; some of the new meds are helpful. Love each other.

Semen Analysis test: A semen analysis through a fertility clinic is a good place to start for him. In couples who aren't getting pregnant after trying for a year or longer, almost half the time there is a sperm issue (40-50%). It could be the only problem or occur along with problems on your side.
