Cigarette smoking causes decrease in sperm density, total sperm count, total number of motile sperm and citrate concentration. Only those spermatozoa that possess adequate mechanical stimulation, chemical activation, functional and structural properties reach the female genitalia to complete its course of action. These require optimal levels of a number of biochemical and clinical parameters for it to fulfil its apposite function.Materials and Methods: A clinical study was carried on the fertile smoker samples. Semen and biochemical parameters (Triglycerides, Total protein, Calcium, Potassium, Zinc, Magnesium, and Sodium) were assayed. Statistical analysis was done using SPSS (version 21.10) and one-way ANOVA was used.Results: However, the results showed though the levels of biochemical parameters were altered they were not radical enough to bring upon any effect on fertility of men. Conclusion: Hence, from this survey we get to know that though the clinical factors are marginally varied they retain their significance upon regulating the sperm characteristics in fertile smokers. Further prominent deductions can be derived in future by including parameters of infertile smoker samples. © RJPT All right reserved.
