A population-based survey of life-style factors and subfecundity (prolonged time to pregnancy) was conducted between 1984 and 1987 in two cities in Denmark.
Altogether, 11,888 women filled out a questionnaire in the last trimester of pregnancy (an 86 percent response rate).
After exclusion of women who had been treated for infertility or who did not respond to the question on infertility, 10,886 subjects remained.
Among nonsmokers, no association was found between subfecundity (defined as a waiting time of 1 year or more from cessation of contraception to achievement of prenancy) and consumption of hot caffeinated beverages.
