ALCOHOL AND INFERTILITY

What to avoid when undergoing IVF

It is universally suggested that alcohol should be avoided when undergoing IVF. Female alcohol consumption is associated with fewer oocytes obtained, lower pregnancy rates, and a 2.21 times increased risk of miscarriage.
A study of 37 women deemed at-risk drinkers were randomized to a brief intervention vs. assessment only.

The women in the brief intervention group had a notable decrease in the number of drinks or drinking days compared with the assessment only group; however, there were no differences in the likelihood of implantation failure, chemical pregnancy, spontaneous abortion, preterm birth, or live birth. Brief intervention and assessment only led to a decrease in alcohol use but did not reveal changes in IVF outcomes.
