You’ve looked at the calendar and you’re in your happy days: the fertility window. You’re used to having a small aromatic cup of coffee every morning, but you’ve heard so much about the effects of coffee so now you’re rethinking it.


Don’t worry. We’ll quickly guide you through the most important scientific evidence-based facts about how coffee, and namely the caffeine that it contains, may influence your fertility.


As you already know, lifestyle choices can affect a woman's ability to conceive.


While there’s scientific evidence on the impact of caffeine on a woman who is already pregnant, there is none to confirm that caffeine can influence ovulation or fertility in general if you have less than 200 milligrams a day.


If you are trying to conceive, think about limiting your caffeine intake to one or two 6- to 8-ounce cups of coffee a day.
