Caffeine And Fertility
Caffeine = none: Am not aware of any effects of caffeine on fertility. Alcohol, in more than modest doses (1 drink/day in women, 2 drinks/day in men) can reduce both testosterone and estrogen levels, causing reduced sperm counts and sperm that don't move properly, and do not look normal. In women, reduced periods and lower fertility occur. Use of alcohol in pregnancy can result in profound damage to babies. ...Read more
Food and diet rich to increase health of utreus and stimulate ovulation and reduce infertility. Plz suggest foods to induce/stimulate ovulation.
Reality check...: A generally healthy diet low in fats and with balanced protein, carbohydrate, vitamins and minerals along with general good health and exercise, will increase "health of the uterus". However, diet alone will not "stimulate ovulation" or treat problems like endometriosis or scar tissue or ovulatory dysfunction, etc that contribute to infertility. ...Read more
Is caffeine present in all chocolates and chocolate drinks?Does 'serious mass' weight gainer contains caffeine? Thank you.
Dark chocolate: Caffeine is higher in dark chocolate than milk chocolate. Any of the serious mass weight gainer that is chocolate would contain some caffeine. Red bull is 80 mg of caffeine per serving and caffeine in milk chocolate is about 12 mg. ( red bull is 7x the caffeine of regular chocolate) it might help to cut back on red bull. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Probably, yes: The real issue is in defining "alcohol use in moderation". For many this means daily alcohol intake of 1-4 alcoholic beverages, which is significant. Alcohol use can effect male hormone metabolism which in turn can effect hormone production. Some data suggest a lower take-home baby rate with ingestion of >4 drinks per week. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How will smoking, drinking, hormone imbalance, irregular periods and intake of contraceptives affect the treatment for dysmenorrhea?
Several issues: Dysmenorrhea is a common problem for women as they approach menopause. The birth control pill can be very helpful to control this. Women who are in their late 40's are perimenopausal, meaning close to menopause. At this time, your body is more sensitive to poor behaviors such as smoking and alcohol. You will feel best with a healthy diet and exercising, not smoking, and no excessive alcohol. ...Read more
Does drinking alcohol affect your fertility?How long before you try to concieve should you stop drinking caffeine and alcohol i plan on ttc in july
Moderation: First, you don't have to stop drinking caffeine as there's no harm for moderate caffeine consumption in pregnancy. 200mg a day is without any risks. As far as alcohol. A drink or two a week while trying to conceive likely won't affect your fertility, but if you want to be 100% safe, then abstain as soon as you are not using birth control. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm wondering can the intake of high amounts of sugar, caffeine etc have an effect on your vaginal health?
Yes : If you are taking a lot of sugar the excess can spill over and create an environment prone to yeast vaginitis. If you take too much you can gain weight and eventually may develop high blood pressure and complication. Caffeine will cause some high blood pressure and make some people have irritable bladder. Probably does not do much to the vagina. Etc is unclear. Everything in moderation. ...Read more
Will taking 1 mg of Xanax (alprazolam) daily affect my sperm count/fertilily in any way? Also, will drinking alcohol affect my sperm count/fertility?
Xanax (alprazolam) is addicting : While Xanax (alprazolam) may not lower your sperm count it can most certainly over time decrease your libido (desire for sex). However the main issue with longterm use of drugs in this class (benzodiazepines) and in particular Xanax (alprazolam), is their addictive potential. Use with care, and I'd recommend not daily but only as you need. ...Read more
Weight loss: The 1st treatment for PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) in overweight/obese women is weight loss, which must be a total lifestyle change in eating&exercise habits. In some cases, appetite suppressants (eg phentermine) can be helpful as a short-term aid; as weight comes off & appetite signals start working properly, it is no longer needed. Without permanent lifestyle change, phentermine = failure. ...Read more

Prescribed estrium and i3c for endometriosis and infertility by naturopath/pharmacist to detox and level estrogen. Will this actually help?
Who knows?: By definition, "alternative" is different than modern western medicine. Generally any drug, herb, treatment, or procedure that stands up to rigorous scientific scrutiny is included in modern medicine. The problem is that many alternative practices, herbs etc do not stand up to scientific scrutiny and cannot be shown to work. They therefore remain "alternative". See a real doctor.if concerned ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Does consuming caffein adversly affect fertility and how much is considered a safe amount to consume while trying to fall pregnant for male and female?
Dose dependent: No one knows for certain. Like most toxins, the more caffeine the higher the risk of problems. No one knows for sure if there is a 'threshhold effect, ' below that amount there is no impact. I usually counsel patients that one caffeinated drink per day is unlikely to have an effect on fertility. ...Read more
