Congratulations! If you’re here, then you’re probably thinking about getting pregnant in the near future. Or perhaps you’ve thrown out your contraception, started to record your ovulation timing and you and your partner are already having lots of fun trying for a baby.
Today we know a lot more about the importance of pre-conception care, and are aware that careful planning can have a positive impact on the health of the mother and her baby, while in the womb and throughout life.
For a healthy, fertile couple where both partners are under the age of 35, the chance of getting pregnant straight away is actually pretty low – it’s estimated at around 25 percent per month, if you have regular unprotected sex around the time of ovulation.
Well, you’ve waited and waited, your body feels like it’s changing already (or perhaps it doesn’t) and you are dying to find out whether that sneaking suspicion that you
might be pregnant is actually correct.
