A study was released in the ‘Journal Diabetes Care’ (2005) showed that daily caffeine can contribute to the problem of ‘insulin resistance’ (i.e., insulin cannot be used effectively when burning sugar for energy. This causes a lot of sugar that is not ‘burnt’ in in the blood) besides insulin resistance prevents ovulation (egg release from the ovary).

Other studies found that caffeine raise the level of estrogen in the blood, causing infertility.

Other studies show women who consumed 300mg or more of caffeine, has a probability of pregnancy is lower.
