Caffeine: how much is too much during your fertility journey?

 

Research has shown that:

 

  • caffeine increases the length of time it takes to conceive: women who consume less than one cup of coffee are twice as likely to become pregnant, per cycle, as moderate coffee drinkers. The risk of not becoming pregnant increased with higher caffeine consumption.
  • in patients undergoing IVF, women who consume even modest amounts of caffeine (50 mg) were likely to have decreased live birth rates.
  • It is thought that caffeine:
  • causes sperm DNA damage
  • affects ovulation and corpus luteum functioning (hormonal)

 

Caffeine is not only in coffee! We can find caffeine in tea, soda drinks and chocolate.
