If you’re trying to get pregnant, then chances are you’ve heard the rumor that coffee is bad for fertility. Some believe a cup a day won’t hurt while others strongly advise you to stay away from caffeine altogether. So, which is it?
Dr. Randine Lewis, a fertility acupuncturist, suggests to stay away from caffeinated beverages and thinks green tea is a much better choice. Another medicine practitioner, Iva Keene cautions that coffee can cause stress, which we all know is very bad for fertility. She believes that even a tiny cup can cut your chances of conceiving in half. So is it worth the risk to you? Perhaps it’s worth biting the bullet and going caffeine free.
