I read that Dr. Pepper was the worst to drink for men not women though. The coloring and caffeine can kill sperm.

When we went to our fertility specialist he told my hubby to lay off the Mt Dew because of everything that's in it. He also advised me not to drink alot of caffienated drinks either.

I keep reading that the equivalent of 1 cup of coffee a day is okay, but too much caffeine can be harmful to ttc.  I believe it can cause problems with implantation.

Yeah. 

Dont drink a whole lotta caffeine. Its been shown to raise BP and is not good for you. It can also cause miscarriages. It takes a LOT of caffeine for that though.

One Dr. Pepper is not going to do a darn thing : ) Crack it and ENJOY!

My dr gave me advice to live like I'm pregnant while ttc. It helps increase your chances of getting pg. I have  read that caffeine increses the chance of m/c & is bad for sperm count. I'm still worlking on the that part. I pretty much everything else under control. (minus losing a few lbs)

My doctor said that all sodas are bad, but if you must drink them. Drink Sprite, or any other lite color drink.

I drink a mug of coffee and 1 glass of diet pop a day. While I was pregnant I couldn't stand coffee anymore so I drank 2 cans of diet pop a day. Did not hurt anything.
