Planning to Get Pregnant? Here are the Top 5 Things You Should Do

1. Talk to your obstetrician about when is the best time of month (the fertile window) to conceive. If you don’t have regular periods, talk to your doctor.

2. Discuss with your obstetrician any medical diseases, medications, or medical history that may impact your pregnancy.

3. Optimize your lifestyle by stopping smoking, limiting alcohol consumption to the time before your fertile window, and minimizing caffeine intake.

4. Take prenatal vitamins.

5. If you aren’t pregnant in 12 months (or 6 months if you are over 35), seek consultation with a fertility specialist.
