New podcast: Marijuana’s effects on fertility

Much is known about the destructive impact that cigarette smoking has on male and female infertility. But now, as cannabis becomes legal and marijuana use has increased by 60% within the last decade, it’s important to understand how this drug can impact fertility.

According to Dr. William Ziegler of RSCNJ, men who smoke marijuana more than once a week have a 30% reduction in sperm count as well as the concentration. It also can affect the way the sperm penetrates the egg, which could actually be a cause for infertility.

In our new podcast, Dr. Ziegler discusses these and other facts about marijuana and fertility. You can listen to the podcast below.
