Preparing for pregnancy is a long and mysterious process. Many people have driven hard on this road and faced various pregnancy problems along way, but they are not afraid of difficulties and continue to go forward. The end, and some people walked, never saw end. Many people think that as long as they find ovulation period, they will definitely be able to conceive a child, but if this is true, today I will talk about some misunderstandings.Have you come across these 4 misconceptions about preparing for pregnancy?
Misconception 1: Sexual activity during ovulation can lead to pregnancy
Do you also have this question when you are preparing for pregnancy? The ovulation period is indeed very important for couples who are preparing for pregnancy, but does this mean that they will definitely win auction? Wrong! Wrong! Wrong! The reason I repeat this thrice is because I want to stress everyone, don't be limited to ovulation period. If you have very regular periods, then you can calculate ovulation period from menstrual cycle, which will be very accurate. But if your periods are very chaotic, the cycle in this month is 28 days, and next month there will be 31 days, then you can’t count like that, it’s not accurate.
Misconception 2: Pre-pregnancy screening should only be done by women
Some traditional men think that pregnancy has nothing to do with them if they are around when they are in business, and only their wives should take a pregnancy test, but this is a misconception. Pregnancy requires healthy sperm and quality eggs In order to conceive a child, both parties need to check their problems, men check sperm problems, women check eggs and fallopian tube problems.
Misconception 3: quitting smoking and alcohol is only necessary at stage of preparation for pregnancy
I think everyone knows that smoking or drinking alcohol is very bad for your health, so you will quit smoking and drinking when you are pregnant, but is that enough? Wrong, if you want to conceive a healthy child, in addition to quitting smoking and alcohol, you also need to get rid of some bad habits such as staying up late for a long time, sitting for a long time, not exercising, etc. .This will affect a good pregnancy, so you need to fix them.
Misconception 4: Nutritional supplements are needed after pregnancy
Many expectant mothers believe that fetus needs nutritional supplements even in womb so that it can grow up healthy, and in preparation for pregnancy, you only need to give up some bad habits, and supplementation does not need additional nutrition. In fact, three months before pregnancy is best time to take folic acid. Folic acid is designed to prevent fetal deformities. If supplementation is required after pregnancy, it may increase risk to fetal health. It is necessary to take folic acid as well as other nutrients such as calcium, vitamins, iron, protein, etc., which can effectively prevent anemia and calcium deficiency during pregnancy.
There are many more things to do to prepare for pregnancy, and it's not something you can conceive just by thinking about it. Therefore, you who are preparing for pregnancy should avoid these misunderstandings in time and listen more to words of doctor. so that you can conceive and have children as soon as possible.
