i was reading that in order to be more fertile you should stop drinking coffee. is this only because of the caffeine? if so, couldn't you just buy de-caffeinated coffee or is it something else in the coffee that can also cause infertiltiy?

  • No. It's the caffeine. I switched to de-caff just to be OB said that 1 cup a day was okay, if you're a regular coffee drinker....but I quit cold-turkey.

  • But just a reminder if your gonna cut out caffine, de-caff has a small amount of caffine so dont go nuts drinking it thinking it has none and watch out for teas they have more caffine than coffee.
