Dr. Seema Wadhwa says with increasing stress levels and changes in lifestyle, the younger generation is facing initial problems in conceiving. These tips will surely guide you but it is important to visit your gynaecologist for an expert advice.

1. Visit a Gynaecologist 2 to 3 months before planning for pregnancy for Baseline tests and diagnosis of any problems.

2. Any disease running in the family of either partner needs to be discussed.

3. Get a Baseline Ultrasound done to check Uterus and Ovaries.

4. A Midcycle Ultrasound can give a clue as to whether Ovulation is occurring normally.

5. A few tests for Husband are also advised.

6. Start Folic Acid supplement

7. Treat / Control  Medical Disorders such as Anemia, High Blood Pressure, Thyroid disease, Asthma, Diabetes etc.

8. Treat infections if any such as UTI, Leucorrhoea, chronic cough etc
