Why women are strongly prohibited from smoking?

Posted by ainina jelani at 22:17
While many campaigns are held to educate people to stop smoking, we can see that nowadays many female teenagers are eager to try smoking without realizing the long term effects. Smoking is very harmful as there are many effects that we cannot see physically in a short time period especially for women.


If you are taking oral contraceptive/ medication for birth control

  • smoking can increase the risk to cardiovascular diseases such as strokes, heart attack and blood clotting.

If you are pregnant
  • chemicals from tobacco will be passed to the fetus and this will lead to preterm delivery, low birth weight, premature rupture of membrane, placenta previa, and even could lead to miscarriage and neonatal death.
  • after birth, the child would have ear aches, respiratory problem and they will be more cold than the child whose mother did not smoking.

  • infertility
  • cancer
  • pelvic inflammatory disease
  • early menopause if you start smoking as early during teenagers
  • menstrual problem such as abnormal bleeding, absence of periods
  • vaginal discharge and infection
  • increase risk of bone loss and osteoporosis 5-10% more than non smokers when they reach menopause
  • smoking lead to development of cervical cancer
  • increase risk of breast cancer by 75% especially for women who smokes more than two packs a day
  • increase risk of developing vulvar cancer
Smoking is dangerous no matter you are a man or women. It is not only harmful for yourself who smokes, but it also will affect other people who inhale the smoke, and who receive the harmful substances from the smoke. Don't you feel guilty to all those non-smokers who are suffering because of you such as the children, your unborn baby and people around you? So come on, stop smoking, save lives and save the environment!
