Becoming a parent starts with getting your body ready for pregnancy
Having a child and becoming a parent is one of the biggest decisions a couple has to make in their lifetime. If you have finally decided to have a child, there are various things to consider before getting pregnant because improper planning can lead to miscarriage or many other health problems – either to the mother or to the baby. You might be mentally and emotionally ready to become a mother but is your body ready for it? Be it your first or succeeding pregnancy, sometimes it might be too early and sometimes too late. We could never know unless we make a preconception planning which should go according to plan.
Here are a few tips that will help you know your body and help you make plans for conception without any issue.
1 Type of birth control
There are different methods of birth control, and when you have decided to stop taking birth control pills to conceive, you might skip your cycle for not more than two weeks. But, if you had one normal period after stopping the pills, it will be helpful to note the date you ovulated and the due date for the baby. However, if you wish to wait for another few more months, it is best to use condoms to get your cycle back to normal. Some women opt for long-term birth control methods such as progestin injections. In such cases, conceiving after stopping the injections will take more months than with pills.
