Drinking 'may help conception' A moderate amount of drinking may actually help a woman to become pregnant, research has found. Scientists found that women who do not drink at all can actually take longer to become pregnant than those who drink up to two alcoholic beverages a day.
Dr Peter Bowen-Simpkin, a spokesman for the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, said the study confirmed what he had long suspected.
He told BBC News Online: "I always advise women who want to get pregnant to take a glass of wine before they go to bed. "They will more relaxed, happy and much more likely to have sex at the right time."
