Will smoking marijuana increase a women's chance of fertility if she has pcos?

Will smoking marijuana increase a women's chance of fertility if she has pcos?

Nope: Nice try, though.... Any smoking will not increase your fertility or improve pcos symptoms. You may not care as much ; have an increased appetite, neither which is beneficial to achieve pregnancy.

Has anyone ever died overdosing from smoking marijuana?

Has anyone ever died overdosing from smoking marijuana?

Probably not.: To be clear, I am not an advocate at all for marijuana use. That said, a literature search confirmed my impression that the likelihood of it causing death is slim to none.

That said, chronic, heavy use of marijuana is associated with a variety of negative outcomes. ...Read more
