If you are taking prescribed medicine, please inform your GP that you plan to conceive. Do not stop taking them before you consult doctor.

Begin eliminating hazards from your life (chemicals, x-rays, etc.). If you work in a hazardous environment, try to ask about safety at work or whether you could change jobs while you are trying to conceive. You should avoid contact other poisonous spray, inhalation, gas vapor or feces of cats or dogs (as there are sources of toxoplasmosis). You should also avoid hot baths or sauna, contacting or eating raw meat.

Eat sensibly. This means to make a positive effort to include fruit, vegetables, cereals and protein in your diet. At the very least, say no to junk food!

Start taking a prenatal vitamin, with folic acid.

Have your partner join you in a road to good health, including diet and exercise?

Learn about the conception process.
