Many people do not understand why it is necessary to prepare for pregnancy three months in advance. A month? Is there any benefit? It actually has a scientific basis. Today I will introduce you in detail.Why is it necessary to start a pregnancy three months in advance?
Reason 1: Let eggs develop better
As we all know, a woman releases an egg every month, but not everyone knows that an egg needs a long process of growth before it is released. To become a healthy and quality egg, she needs 85 days of growth period to give birth to a healthy baby . Among these eggs, if you want to be best, you must go through layers of validation. And it takes 3 menstrual cycles.
The second reason is to allow spermatozoon to develop well
To give birth to a healthy and quality child, husband and wife must work together, which requires a combination of sperm and eggs. We have already talked about eggs above. Next, we will talk about sperm. It takes 3 months for sperm to become healthier and better quality. If you want to conceive 3 months earlier, future fathers can adapt in time during this period. Bad life habits will help grow a batch of high quality tadpoles and achieve the goal of eugenics.
The third reason is getting enough folic acid
Supplementation with standard doses of folic acid may prevent neural tube defects in fetus. However, due to problems with Chinese eating habits, women in our country are usually deficient in folic acid in body, and it is not possible to make up for this folic acid deficiency in a day or two.
Accompanying studies have shown that folic acid deficiency can be corrected after 90 days after women take folic acid. Therefore, it is necessary to prepare for pregnancy 3 months before taking folic acid, so that folic acid in female body can be maintained at a certain level in order to ensure best nutrition of embryo with folic acid. at an early stage.
While folic acid can be obtained from food, it is easily inactivated by cooking, so it is difficult to get amount required by body from food alone, and it is very necessary to supplement it. Under normal conditions, it is recommended to take an additional 0.4 mg of folic acid per day.
Reason 4: Metabolism of "bad substances" in the body
3 months is a cycle during which cells metabolize harmful substances in body. During this time, parents-to-be will metabolize toxic and harmful substances they have inadvertently come into contact with before, such as drugs, chemicals, etc., to help conceive a healthy baby.
The above is a brief introduction to why it is important to prepare for pregnancy three months in advance. I hope it can be of more benefit to couples who are preparing for pregnancy. At this time, you should go to general reproductive hospital for examination and treatment in time, and early treatment can make baby go as soon as possible.
