Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

We, as a couple are married recently. We want to plan for a baby. However, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, can we plan it now? Is it safe?

Answered by Dr. Reetika


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Coronavirus does not have any known impact on people planning for pregnancy. However, infertility treatment can be deferred. For your family, I would advise that corona may continue for few more months, as claimed by many studies, so you may have difficulty in visiting the hospital for routine visits. If you can wait for more time, it will be ideal. There are many tests and medical conditions or factors which are required to be paid attention to for planning a family. You can contact me subsequently for detailed family planning advice. Please let me know if I can be of any further help.

Regarding follow up

After two days.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
