Drinking Caffeine Decreases Chances of Getting Pregnant

Potentially yes, drinking caffeine decrease chances of  your getting pregnant, especially in combination with any other fertility factors. There is a lot of evidence in the scientific literature about the impact of caffeine in the form of tea, coffee and soft drinks. Even some supplements have caffeine in them, so it’s important to read labels.

The impact of caffeine on sex cells is pretty clear. It has been shown to

  • decrease the ability of the body to balance reproductive hormones.
  • leaches minerals, vitamins and nutrients out of the body
  • increase oxidation in sperm and
  • destroy some of the healthy production of sperm cells
  • may impact on the ability of the embryo to implant in the uterus

You want to avoid caffeine when trying to conceive.

The recommendation that I give to my patients on the Natural Fertility Breakthrough Program is to avoid coffee altogether because this one is a simple, self-care step, that people can take to really improve their chances of carrying a healthy pregnancy to term.

It is a psychoactive drug. It changes the way in which the brain responds and operates and creates anxiety in the system. It definitely is not something that I would not recommend when the majority of our patients in our practice, have been infertile for 2 years or more have experienced recurrent miscarriage.

The emotion, moodiness, anxiety and irritability are often present for these couples already. To add coffee to the equation simply fuels the emotional rollercoaster. It’s best to avoid caffeine altogether. If you’ve been trying to conceive for more than two years then we encourage you to participate in the next Fertility Challenge, a free online education anad action series designed to help couples implement changes that when consistently applied helps couples transform their fertility results.
