Thank you for asking.
Smoking and cocaine compromises the sperm health and that compromised sperm is one big cause of blighted ovum.alsonage of 38 is also not good with eggs health so could be a reason too. Wait for 3 cycle months till next trial and then seek a fertility consultant and let them help you in this regard.
I hope it helps. Take care. Visit our health centre for further guidance.
