I haven't heard that green tea helps with TTC. I have heard you need watch your intake with green tea while pregnant due to the antioxidants. Sorry I'm no help.

I actually heard that green tea is not a great idea. I TTC for 8 months before resorting to IVF and drastically tried to cut down my caffiene intake during that time. I was advised by my acupuncturist to drink black or red tea only and not that much of it.

Honestly though I don't think any of this makes a huge difference. I tried everything and nothing worked for me, I am a healthy 31 year old who was eventually diagnosed with 'unexplained infertility'.

My best advice is to used timed intercourse for awhile and if that doesn't work see a reproductive endcrinologist. TTC is maddening at times when it fails to work so hang in there and try to be calm about it.

I wish you much luck.

I've just read about a herbal tea called female toner. I think I might give this a try this month it seems safe enough. I hope this helps.

Female Toner® supports female systems* by combining herbs to support healthy menstruation, purify blood and to strengthen and tone the uterus.* Female Toner® uses a tonic approach to women’s health and is based on the traditional use of raspberry and strawberry leaf with nettle and other complementary herbs to ease the difficulties of balancing female cycles. It’s a pleasant blend of herbal tastes– slightly bitter and astringent with citrus and mint.

I got myself off the caffeine kick too and found my love for black tea. I thought I hated tea and now it’s my new coffee for work. I think it’s a just a moderation trick. I drink at least two cups a day of black and sometimes green tea. All I have to say I'm proud of myself to kick the bucket to something I was addicted to and what was assisting me gain so much weight.
