Limes and fertility crop.jpg

According to a recent study published in the European Journal of Scientific Research, drinking lime juice could prevent a pregnancy — at least in rats.

The Nigerian Tribune reports that in Central Nigeria, it is common for women to use a lemon juice or lime juice solution as a postcoital douche with the belief that it prevents pregnancy or sexually transmitted diseases, such as HIV. In addition, drinking lime juice is also used by women in preventing conception.

Now scientists at the University of Lagos have extrapolated findings in rats to humans and suggest that limes do, indeed, have an anti-fertility properties.

The researchers set out to examine the changes of the ovaries and uterus of Sprague-Dawley rats. One group of rats received 1 ml of aqueous lime juice on proestrus day (coming into heat day) while Group 2 rats were administered distilled water (control).

Essentially, the researchers found that in rats, undiluted lime juice alters the rats estrous cycle (this is similar to the menstrual cycle in humans) and partially blocked contraception.

So, it might be a good idea to stay away from the lime juice when you're trying to conceive, and for those of you thinking margaritas might make a good contraceptive, I wouldn't bet on it just yet

Do not do it. It's safest to keep it!
