A new study conducted by researchers at Harvard University found women reduce their chances of conceiving via in vitro fertilization (IVF) by consuming sugary drinks, according to a report by the Daily Mail.

For the study, the team, between 2014 and 2016, analysed 340 women undergoing IVF.

 

Researchers investigated the second stage of IVF treatment and women completed a questionnaire to determine what they drink.

The findings were originally published in the journal Fertility and Sterility.
