Women who drink more than six alcoholic beverages per week have reduced fecundability compared with those who do not drink alcohol, according to a study published in Human Reproduction.

Kira C. Taylor, PhD, associate professor of epidemiology and population health at the University of Louisville, and colleagues also observed that women who have three to six alcoholic drinks per week have lower fecundability during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle, and binge drinking and heavy drinking during the ovulatory window greatly reduce fecundability odds.
