Before You Try to Conceive
Getting pregnant and bringing a healthy baby into the world requires more than just having sex!
Everything you do in the three or four months prior to trying to conceive (this is how long the follicles in the ovary need to mature in order to deliver an egg cell during ovulation) is just as important as the sex itself.
Diets, medications, illnesses, environmental pollutants and stress are just a few factors that can affect your fertility. These factors and other outside conditions are also extremely important to the health of your baby.
Scientists suspect that what your body is subjected to before pregnancy is just as important to the health of your baby as what you’re subjected to during pregnancy. Therefore, it is extremely important to look after yourself if you have plans to get pregnant in the future!
