Before you try to conceive, visit your healthcare provider for a checkup, including pap and breast exam. Also discuss your medical history and physical and emotional health. Below is a list of examples of things you may want to discuss concerning your health or the health of your partner.
Age and weight: This may affect your ability to conceive.
Lifestyle: Nutrition and supplements, occupational health concerns and exposure to pesticides, toxins and other harmful exposure, smoking, alcohol or recreational drug (use or abuse) and appropriate detox, as well as stress-reduction, anxiety and depression.
Medication: This includes medication that you previously took, are currently taking or plan to take.
Birth control detox: Whether you should detox from birth control prior to conceiving and how.
General health and the health of your reproductive organs: Current or prior infections, illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases and damage to reproductive organs, etc.
How to increase your chances of getting pregnant, including the use of appropriate lubricants: Ask your healthcare provider for up to date statistics as well as information from relevant reports and studies.
