"It is not so much that they (the women) are suffering from an inability to conceive, but an impatience to do so, set against a bleak backdrop in which almost everything else about their lifestyle has a negative impact.
"A lot of people drink as a way to relax, but studies have shown that alcohol directly impacts fertility. In women, it's thought to affect reproductive hormones, leading to an abnormal menstrual cycle," British fertility expert Zita West told the 'Daily Mail'.

"Next thing, the couple are arguing, and bitter feelings and resentment provide another barrier to sex, which in turn affects conception. And all this may happen in a far shorter time frame than the average seven months it takes to conceive," West said.
So this means that if I don't drink any alcohol and we get along perfectly, I will automatically get preggo. Right. It fixes everything. Ugh! You know it is one thing to make those claims, but when you bring IVF into it.... it is personal, Bitches. Yes, I am a little worked up on this.... but come on folks, have some sense if you are going to publish this kind of nonsense.
