    Exclamation * Caffeine & Fertility

    Dont know if anyone saw it, there was a small article in Sunday's Paper re coffee and TTC.



    Apparently they have proven that coffee actually stops the egg from embedding into the womb. They proved this by injecting coffee into rats (poor little buggers! )

    They did say that it affects women who drink a lot of coffee, so hopefully the one cup a day i have is ok ( it is my one sanity!!).

    They did also say that if you have a partner who drinks a lot of coffee and combines that with alcohol and cigarettes, your chances of egg not embedding into womb are a lot greater.

    Yes, I read that article too.

    It did not mention how much is too much though!

    I was wondering if my 1 cup of Espresso coffee was too much???

    I know waiting, how annoying is that! I dont think our one cup a day would be too much, I think they said large amounts, so I reckon that would be 3 0r 4 cups a day maybe?

    My mum, when she was working, would have about 10 - 15 cups of tea/coffee a day. This was largely because she did home help work and every time she would go to an old dear's place, they really just wanted someone to talk to.

    Then she'd come home and have her 'normal' cuppas.

    So THAT'S a lot.

    I don't think 1 -2 cuppas a day matters.

    OMG, if I had that much coffee, my nerves would be all a shaking. Sometimes if I have 2 coffees, I get like that!! 8-[

    I have heard very similar things to that article. I have heard that the caffeine can stop your pregnancy from developing due to the fact that coffee dehydrates you.

    Anyway, caffeine's not good for you so you probably should avoid it. I have given it up while Im TTC. Just in case, you never know!! [-X
