Drinking too much coffee or too much alcohol can impair a woman’s fertility.

Excess intake of coffee is not good.

Experts say that drinking more than five cups of coffee a day, the equivalent of about 500 milligrams of caffeine is associated with lower fertility. But don’t give up your daily cup of coffee just yet. Moderate caffeine consumption is alright. Having one or two cups a day is fine.

Studies on alcohol intake and women’s fertility have produced mixed findings. But Swedish researchers have found that women who drank two alcoholic beverages a day decreased their fertility by nearly 60%. Once again, moderation is important.
