I like to add lemon to fizzy water as well as squeeze on salads, salmon, etc.

after trying to conceive for quite some time, including 3 clomid/iui cycles and 2 follistim/iui cycles, an accupunturist suggested i try lemon water. i did that daily and eliminated aspartame.....and got a natural BFP. unfortunately it ended with a m/c and i have not again gotten pregnant.

I have been having hot water and lemon first thing in the morning because it helps with fertility (per the book Making Babies: a proven 3 month plan) AND I am trying to cut down my caffine. I went from an XL coffee in the morning to a Medium ... and I am not feeling the side effcts of cutting out caffeine!

I don't drink alcohol, smoke cigarettes (I quit when I found out I was pregnant with my DS), or drugs ... heck I don't even take anything when I have a headache but I do LOVE my coffee so I figure I should cut down on my caffeine and see if that helps TTC.

Wow very interesting I'm a caffine aholic , I hate it because I know oh so well it's not good. I drive for a living 10-14 hr days and it seems that my caffine helps me stay alert. I am def gonna try to atleast wing myself from the caffine drinks and put more leamon water in my liquid intake :D

It's funny I came across this post because I had just started drinking lemon water about 2 weeks ago for all the other health benefits! I always squeeze the lemon in my water at restaurants but now I start each day with a glass first thing in the morning. So glad to see it helps with fertility too!! Something that article fails to mention is that you should not put the lemon juice into very hot water. Warm or cold is best because if it's too hot, it kills the beneficial enzymes in the lemon!

Kaylaxkitten, approximately how much lemon water were you drinking every day when you conceived? I may want to increase my consumption! I also read something about how consuming acidic/citrus fruits like lemon, lime, grapefruit juices or the fruits themselves actually turn alkaline in your body which makes YOU more alkaline and more receptive to sperm and pregnancy. The more acidic you are, the less likely that sperm can survive etc etc.

Yes, I agree with some previous posters. Although any lemon water is good, I think specifically it is WARM LEMON WATER FIRST THING IN THE MORNING that is extremely beneficial.

Here is another source:

Definitely agree with this!!!
I've heard it works wonders for the liver-especially having water with lemon first thing on empty stomach. From what I've researched and heard the liver has to process everything-including hormones. An imbalance to hormones can cause a backup, so adding lemon can help. I think of lemon water as a nice "hug" for the liver and the body! :) But that's just my opinion! :)
