Too much coffee reduces fertility



Dutch scientists have suggested that drinking too much coffee and alcohol can lower pregnancy chances in women with poor fertility.

According to a recent study, drinking more than four cups of coffee a day reduces the likelihood of conception chance by 26%, as caffeine has toxic effects on the ovaries and sperm.


Radboud University researchers reported that drinking alcohol at least three times a week has similar effects in the pregnancy process to excessive caffeine intake.

Findings show that smoking more than one cigarette per day and being overweight also impede pregnancy.

The study revealed that IVF success rate drops from 15% to 5% in a 36-year-old overweight woman who smokes and drinks too much coffee and alcohol.


Researchers concluded that patients can increase the chance of spontaneous IVF pregnancy by following a healthy lifestyle.
