Coffee, Soda, Tea & Early Miscarriage – Much greater risk than we thought!


Coffee soda and tea all have one thing
in common, they all contain caffeine. Caffeine has been linked with
infertility and early miscarriage but not all studies agree on the effect Part of the problem with these studies is that they rely on people accurately
reporting how much caffeine they consume People aren’t always honest about their
use of things like alcohol caffeine and tobacco. Furthermore, some people may just
not realize how much they consume. To try to get around this problem, researchers recently looked at 1,200 women who were trying to conceive. Instead of asking how
much caffeine they consumed, They measured the amount of caffeine and caffeine metabolites detected in their blood. A pregnancy was confirmed if a woman had a positive blood pregnancy test An early miscarriage diagnosis was made if a pregnancy was lost before it was seen on ultrasound A later miscarriage were those that occurred after being seen on ultrasound The results are really pretty amazing! Women who had any detectable
level of caffeine in their blood prior to conception had an almost fivefold
greater risk of an early miscarriage. There was very little impact of caffeine
on later miscarriage except that coffee exerted a greater risk for later
miscarriage whereas soda showed a greater risk for early miscarriage Our InfertilityTV bottom line is really simple: Avoid caffeine if you are trying
