Women hoping to have a baby may want to cut out caffeine.

New research reveals that caffeine consumption may make it harder to get pregnant.

Scientists looked at the fallopian tubes in mice and found that caffeine interferes with muscle contractions that help eggs travel into the womb. The process is critical for a successful pregnancy.

The study was published in Thursday's British Journal of Pharmacology.
