It’s not a longer secret now that alcohol problem can cause lots of problems in your life.

No one can deny the fact that alcohol consumption has always been a threat to your health and life. Although there are several studies that show that mild alcohol consumption can be beneficial for health.
The School of Public Health at Harvard University found that “moderate amounts of alcohol raises levels of high-density lipoprotein, HDL, or ‘good’ cholesterol and higher HDL levels are associated with greater protection against heart disease. Moderate alcohol consumption has also been linked with beneficial changes ranging from better sensitivity to insulin to improvements in factors that influence blood clotting….Such changes would tend to prevent the formation of small blood clots that can block arteries in the heart, neck, and brain, the ultimate cause of many heart attacks and the most common kind of stroke.” Therefore saying that alcohol consumption has only disadvantage may be a mis-perception but when it comes to women fertility, alcohol consumption can bring some fatal results. Consumption of alcohol at any stage of pregnancy can bring some major consequences that you can’t imagine.
The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) is an independent organization responsible for promoting good health and preventing and treating ill health. NICE Besides it has advised that the risks of miscarriage in the first three months of pregnancy mean that it is especially important for women not to drink alcohol at all during that period. However, it is important to understand that drinking alcohol carries risk throughout the whole pregnancy, not only for the first three months. Although it isn’t clear that how moderate drinking may not affect fertility but there are enough evidence that consumption of alcohol may cause you some major problem during pregnancy. When you drink alcohol, it travels through your blood to the placenta and then in your baby’s blood and how it will affect your baby depends on what amount of alcohol you have drunk. Excessive consumption is surely going to affect baby’s development. It also affects your baby’s health that may result in unhealthy baby.

Therefore staying yourself away from alcohol can have a big relief if you are a liquor addict. If you want your baby to be safe then first of all you have to renounce alcohol and have to accept a healthy lifestyle.
