PResults: The mean of caffeine intake in infertile women (140.68±105.32) was more than healthy women (122.5±96.8), but the difference was not significant (P=0.98). There was no significant relation between smoking and caffeine intake with infertility. The mean body mass index in infertile and healthy women were 26.74±4.11 and 24.98±2.88 kg/m2, respectively.
