For women, drinking excessive amounts of alcohol can have a negative impact on ovulation and menstrual cycles, which is essential for conception. Alcohol also depletes the body of vital vitamins and minerals and we know, we need good levels of nutrition to make a healthy embryo and baby.
Studies have shown that consuming excessive amounts of alcohol lowers testosterone levels as well as the quality, quantity and motility of sperm. It has also been proven to cause impotence and reduce libido. However, by abstaining from alcohol the effects on fertility are easily reversed.
We arent saying that you should stop drinking, but perhaps consider reducing your alcohol intake.
It’s recommended to drink no more than 14 units of alcohol a week, spread across 3 days or more. That’s around 6 medium (175ml) glasses of wine, or 6 pints of 4% beer. There’s no completely safe level of drinking, but sticking within these guidelines lowers your risk of harming your health.
