Studies on Alcohol and Fertility
Posted in 2013

  • Women and men should avoid consuming alcohol while trying to conceive.
  • Women who consume more than 5 alcoholic beverages a week take longer to get pregnant.
  • Women who drink 5 or less alcoholic beverages a week have lowered fertility.
  • Infertile women who seek medical care for their fertility issues, have been shown to have a significantly higher alcohol intake than women who become pregnant naturally.
  • Men who regularly consume alcohol have lower sperm motility and concentration, as well as lowered chance of fertilization.
  • Alcohol depresses the adrenal glands and slows the release of hormones produced by the adrenal glands. This may directly impair egg health and libido.
  • In men with poor sperm quality, excessive alcohol consumption was associated with decreased number of normal sperm.
  • Alcoholic beverages contain a lot of sugar. Excessive sugar consumption decreases fertility by contributing to hormonal imbalance, insulin resistance, yeast infection, vitamin and mineral deficiency and lowered immunity. All of which may impair fertility for both men and women.
  • Drinking alcohol around the time of ovulation lowers your chance of successful conception.
Impact of Alcohol on Female Fertility
Several studies on the affects of alcohol on monkeys and rats showed multiple fertility problems including, ammenorrhea (delayed/absent menstrual cycle), reduced ovarian weight, lowered hormone concentrations, inhibited ovulation, and interference with sperm cell transportation through the fallopian tube. Human trials have shown frequent alcohol consumption by women to increase incidence of the menstrual disorders ammenorrhea, dysmenorrhea  (painful menstruation) and irregular menstrual cycles.

Risks of Regular Alcohol Consumption on Pregnancy

It is well know that women who drink alcohol during pregnancy may cause major health problems for their baby. Excessive alcohol consumption throughout pregnancy is teratogenic (ability to cause birth defects), resulting in fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS). Drinking in pregnancy may increase risk of miscarriage, pre-term labor and delivery, placental abruption and stillbirth.
