Is there a linkage between too much coffee and pregnancy rates?

Times Health Land Magazine reported a new study that claims drinking too much coffee may lower  a woman’s chances of getting pregnant. Researchers at the University of Nevada conducted an experiment on mice and concluded that too much caffeine hindered the progress of specialized cells transporting the eggs from the ovaries to the uterus. These specialized cells are in charge of squeezing the eggs around the fallopian tubes efficiently and into the womb.

Sean Ward, a professor of University of Nevada School of Medicine said, “This provides an intriguing explanation as to why women with high caffeine consumption often take longer to conceive than women who do not consume caffeine.” However, past research shows inconsistency linking pregnancy and caffeine rates.

It is advised that women who want to get pregnant should limit themselves about a cup or two of coffee a day or in other words, about 50 milligrams of caffeine intake. This is equivalent to a soda, five chocolate bars or a cup of tea.
