Experts agree that heavy drinking can result in fertility issues.
Studies show that alcohol and fertility problems are closely related, and of course, drinking after becoming pregnant is very dangerous.
Alcohol intake while trying to conceive can cause hormone imbalance, ovulation problems and missed periods.
Drinking can also cause infertility in men.
Excessive consumption of alcohol can also negatively affect men’s chances of being fertile.
Studies have shown that alcohol decreases the chances of getting pregnant among both men and women, but the amount of consumption is the variable that causes controversy. Many wonder how much alcohol is a problem – one drink per week? A glass of wine per day?
When trying to conceive, consult your doctor about alcohol and fertility. If you are a social drinker and have not been able to conceive, consider giving up drinking completely and ask your partner to do the same. If you are a heavy drinker, consider asking a doctor for help quitting. There are many great resources, including Alcoholics Anonymous.
Remember that once you become pregnant, doctors suggest avoiding alcohol completely. Alcohol can have serious and even fatal consequences for your baby.
