According to a study, prospective dads should give up drinking 6 months before conception in order to avoid developmental issues during the pregnancy.
"I guess it means no more bottoms up when you're getting down," Dr. Spitz says, but he notes the study found the people with the highest incidents of issues related to drinking were those who binge drink, which was defined as having around 20 drinks a day.
"Certainly, don't go on a bender. Don't binge drink and don't have that kind of a lifestyle leading up to ultimately when you are going to be father," Dr. Spitz suggests.
The Doctors note conceiving a baby can be difficult for many people and they do not like the added pressure this study might be placing on prospective parents, especially those who might be mild to moderate drinkers. Their takeaway from the study is that binge drinking is never good for someone's health, especially those looking to conceive.
