Researchers from the University of Nevada's School of Medicine conducted the study on a group of mice and found that the presence of caffeine in the body interfered with the working of Fallopian tubes which perform the vital task of transferring the eggs from ovaries to the uterus.

Lead researcher Professor Sean Ward said that excess caffeine in the body interfered with the working of pacemaker cells which helped in the contraction of the tubes through which the eggs were pushed towards the uterus.

Ward said that he hoped the study will prove to be helpful for the doctors in treating sexually transmitted diseases. "As well as potentially helping women who are finding it difficult to get pregnant, a better understanding of the way Fallopian tubes work will help doctors treat pelvic inflammation and sexually-transmitted disease more successfully", he said.
