Couples attempting to have a baby may want to lay off the caffeine.

A new study shows that women and men who drink three or more cups of caffeinated drinks before a pregnancy have a greater chance of losing that pregnancy. In fact, the chances of losing the baby are 75 percent.

And it didn't matter if the caffeine came from coffee, sodas or energy drinks. Caffeine has been linked to miscarriages for a while, but this is the first detailed study to include men.
