There are many tips and tricks out there on how to best take care of your fertility and prepare your body for pregnancy. Even though these are usually well-meant advices, one can quickly become confused and overwhelmed by them.
At La Roar, we always try to sift through the facts and convey what science says.
A controversial topic is coffee – and we understand that well. Many of us are used to drinking coffee as part of our morning routine, when the fatigue catches up with us or when we have a coffee date with our girlfriends.
But does coffee have a negative impact on fertility and do we really need to get rid of our morning coffee when planning a pregnancy?
According to sundhed.dk, the short answer is no. You can drink coffee when planning a pregnancy, as long as you don’t exceed 3 cups/day. An intake of maximum 3 cups of coffee (or 300 mg of caffeine) daily has no effect on the ability to achieve a pregnancy or on the risk of miscarriage.
It is still unknown whether a larger amount than 300 mg of caffeine daily can lead to risks, so until we learn more, we should stick to the recommendations and should not exceed that amount.
