Excessive caffeine consumption may be linked to male infertility issues such as lowered sperm count and lowered sperm motility, but healthy diet habits and a prescription fertility treatment can help reduce these effects.
Are you one of the people who can hardly get out of bed without a morning cup of coffee? Or perhaps the kind who battles through the mid-afternoon slump with a cup of joe in hand. For many Americans, coffee is the drink of choice for giving that extra boost of alertness whenever it is needed. However, if you have been trying to have a baby, your doctor may have recommended that you reduce your caffeine intake. This goes for men and women. In fact, excessive consumption of caffeine has been associated with adverse effects on sperm.
Improve Healthy by Avoiding Caffeine
There is no concrete proof yet of what exact amount of caffeine is bad for fertility, but experts agree that drinking large amounts of coffee, soda, or energy drinks can have a negative effect on sperm quantity, quality, and motility. In fact, a study in the April 2010 issue of American Journal of Epidemiology linked lowered sperm concentration to a high intake of caffeinated soda in men. However, there is no consistent evidence that low or moderate amounts of caffeine can cause these negative effects and further research is necessary to substantiate these early findings.
Support Healthy Conception with the Conception Kit®
For those who want to be extra careful about their diet, it may be a good idea to cut back on the coffee and soda, if only for general health reasons such as reducing calorie intake and excessive levels of caffeine consumption. In addition to being mindful of what you eat and drink, there are other simple and natural ways to improve fertility. For example, the Conception Kit® at-home system is now available as a prescription fertility treatment and is FDA cleared to address common male infertility issues such as low sperm count and low sperm motility. It uses an innovative combination of ovulation timing and cervical cap insemination to ensure sperm are placed and protected in direct proximity to the cervix where they have the best opportunity to fertilize the egg. The Conception Kit® at-home system is easy to use and does not require prior clinical testing before use. It can also be used in combination with fertility medications or during the initial 12-month insurance waiting period.
Couples who are interested in learning more about improving their fertility health or using the Conception Kit® at-home system should speak with their doctor for more information.
