Women keen on motherhood are
being advised to cut down their
intake of coffee. A study conducted
by researchers at the Johns Hopkins
University in the US found that
women who consume 300 mg of
caffeine a day, roughly three cups of
coffee or eight sodas per day, reduce
their monthly chance of conception
by 26 per cent.
The link between caffeine intake and lower fertility has been earlier indicated by other studies too. Now this is reinstated on the basis of the evidence that caffeine disrupts the menstrual cycle and may lead to an early loss of pregnancy.
