Dear Reggy

Hope you had a good holiday and did not consume too much red wine!! Sorry for the delayed response. Just got back from holiday myself!!
Consuming red wine in moderation should in no way interfere with fertility as per say. However,once pregnant, the patient should be cautious when consuming alcohol as this may in some cases result in the so-called foetal alcohol syndrome which could cause some degree of abnormality in the foetus.
