Smoking is worse for women
In addition to the problems above, women who smoke have a
greater risk of:
· difficulty getting
miscarriage, and babies born too small or too soon.
· problems when using birth control
· monthly bleeding that ends
earlier in life (menopause,).
· weaker bones
that break more easily during mid-life and old age (osteoporosis).
· cancer of the cervix and womb.
A woman who is pregnant should try to avoid other people who are
smoking, so that the smoke will not harm her
