Hello doctor,

What are the best things one can do to get pregnant?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

As with anything, having a planned pregnancy has a better outcome than an unplanned pregnancy. For both partners, adhering to a healthy lifestyle in terms of diet, fitness, stopping smoking and alcohol, and stress management are important.

For the woman, in particular, we check blood count, rubella immunity, thyroid levels, sugars if indicated, and advise folic acid supplements to prevent certain neurological defects. If you are at the age of above 35, or having irregular cycles, endometriosis, or have had pelvic infections, you may want to visit your gynecologist to avoid wasting precious time. If your partner smokes or consumes excess alcohol or diabetic or above age 40, it is better to get a semen analysis done. You can calculate the fertile period of your cycle and try to make use of this period.

All the best, hope this helps.
