Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To determine the effect of moderate alcohol intake on probability of conception.

DESIGN:

Prospective cohort study.

SETTING:

Normal healthy women enrolled in an artificial donor insemination program.

PATIENTS:

Women starting artificial donor insemination for the very first time were selected.

INTERVENTIONS:

Alcohol exposure was measured through a self-administered questionnaire at intake of study.

MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE:

A first positive pregnancy test as indicative for conception.

RESULTS:

Women with moderate alcohol intake had a slightly higher, though not significant, probability of conception compared with nondrinkers (Hazard Ratio 1.20; 95% confidence interval 0.90 to 1.60).

CONCLUSION:

Moderate alcohol intake has no negative impact on female fecundity.
