Caffeine Reduces Fertility in Women

Attention all baby-crazy ladies and mice: A new study from the University of Nevada School of Medicine has given women trying to get pregnant a reason to avoid coffee. A study conducted in mice showed that caffeine exposure reduces muscle activity within the fallopian tubes and makes it more difficult for an egg to travel into the womb.

For a woman to become pregnant, an egg must be able to travel down the fallopian tubes and implant in the uterus. In mice, the presence of caffeine interferes with the coordinated fallopian tube contractions that are responsible for moving the egg. The discovery that muscle contractions are integral to the movement of an egg is a new finding, and one that could potentially help physicians understand complications that arise in the fallopian tubes, such as ectopic pregnancies or pelvic inflammation. This tip is also beneficial for people who don't want to get prego. Well, it'll be beneficial once we figure out how to keep our fallope muscles perfectly still.

Researchers hope that the link between caffeine and reduced fallopian tube muscle activity could explain why women who consume a lot of caffeine have difficulty conceiving.

Until we get some real answers, maybe it's best to play it safe and lay off of the joe if you're trying to conceive.

After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: or call him +2349055637784 you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything.
