No: The studies of caffeine and pregnancy have not been conclusive of effect. We recommend to limit caffeine intake to 1-2 drinks per day. Besides coffee and tea you have to be mindful of the caffeine in sodas as well as energy drinks and chocolate.

Yes: Caffeine can raise blood pressure by up to 10 points in people who don't have caffeine very often. This will lower back to normal when the effects of caffeine wear off. This temporary rise in blood pressure is worse in people who already have high blood pressure. If one consumes caffeine on a regular basis, it may raise blood pressure by a small amount over the long term.

Sometimes: Polycystic ovaries is not a disease, it is a syndrome because there are many different conditions that can contribute to developing polycystic ovaries. One of these, excessive weight gain, can be reversed with life style changes. However, because it is known that Insulin stimulates the ovaries to make testosterone and this can lead to cystic ovaries, a low carb diet is most likely to help.
