Thanks for sharing this article. It's true that the "great caffeine debate" goes in all directions. About a month before we started TTC I cut out all caffeine. My cycles got a lot shorter after that (I used to have long cycles), though I can't say for sure what caused it since I also started prenatals and stopped drinking alcohol. Eventually I started drinking green tea again, though I'm still avoiding black tea and coffee and drink predominantly peppermint or chamomile tea and water.

I feel a little guilty if I have more than one cup of green tea, but then again pregnant women here in Japan drink it all the time, and "westerners" are always talking about green tea like it's a miracle tonic. Wouldn't it be great to just have definitive answers on all this?
