Cup of Coffee With Your IVF?


coffee with your ivfThere has always been some debate on whether or not caffeine works against you while you are TTC (trying to conceive).  However, in a recent study just presented at the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology it seems as if there is good reason to stay away from the cup of Joe if you are opting for IVF or ICSI.

In the study, researchers/doctors from the Fertility Clinic of Aarhus University Hospital in Denmark followed 4000 women who were either using IVF or ICSI to build their family.  Researchers gathered information on how much coffee they were drinking on average each day.  In addition, they continued to check caffeine consumption levels at the beginning of each subsequent treatment cycle.

Here are the amazing findings….

Those women who drank 5 or more cups of coffee on a daily basis were 50 percent less likely to become pregnant and 40 percent less likely to sustain a viable pregnancy to term.

Yikes!!!! 

If you are looking at trying IVF or ICSI sometime in the future and drink coffee, you may want to talk with your doctor about its possible impact on your pregnancy to be.
