Yes it can: “With greater smoking, there was a possible increased risk of anovulation & short luteal phase. Segments of ex-smokers with 10 or more pack-years of exposure were more likely to be short & have shorter luteal phases than those of never smokers.” REF: Cigarette smoking and effects on menstrual function at https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9916957
