  • I didn't drink coffee, but I'm bad about caffeinated soft drinks - and was even worse when I was younger and had my oldest 3 kids. I probably drank at least 2-3 cups/day of coke.

  • I drink coffee (a cup or two daily, regular not decaf) and was able to conceive. I don't think coffee, at least at regular doses, prevents you from conceiving.

  • Everyone's got their own unique body chemistry. I am very fertile and coffee didn't affect that one bit. However, for some who are less fertile, something like caffiene can make a critical difference.

  • I drank a pot of coffee. And all he had to do was look at me like he wanted to have sex and then WHAM! I'm all knocked up.

  • I drank coffee all day & got pregnant the second time very easy. BUT! I lost 10 pounds right before I got pregnant & that probably made a difference. It was a surprise pregnancy. I know that this isn't part of the question but, If you are having a hard time getting preg. you may need a D&C. Are your periods regular or are they very heavy & last long??

  • I think it depends on the woman's body. Everyone is different but I have heard of caffeine being a cause of infertility. Caffeine is more harmful than people assume.
