According to the Indian Society of Assisted Reproduction, around 27.4 million couples who are actively trying to conceive are suffering from infertility. Fortunately, with medical advancements and ART methods, infertility is no more treated as a curse in Indian society. It is a medical condition that can very much be cured by infertility treatment in Aurangabad and around the nation.
As the say goes, “Prevention is better than Cure,” those couples who are planning to get pregnant should start preparing their body for healthy child delivery. In this blog, we will discuss how both men and women need to prepare themselves before experiencing parenthood.
Step 1: Visit a gynecologist
There are many things you need to figure out about your body to ensure the baby is delivered healthily. Visit your gynecologist will help you find the issues that may risk your pregnancy chances. Our gynecologist in Aurangabad will discuss the following aspects of your life:
- Medical and family history of both the partners
- Current health issues if any
- Daily routine, diet, and lifestyle
- Any supplements or precautions you have been taking in the past
- Your history of pregnancy (miscarriage, prior pregnancy, or complications)
- Mental health concerns
- Safety at home and work
Step 2: Visit a dentist
Most of the health issues are caused due to a lack of proper oral hygiene. Gum disease, tooth decay, or gingivitis will risk the woman and her future baby. Therefore, visit a dentist and restore your good oral health.
Step 3: Get pre-pregnancy care
Enroll yourself in a local Parenthood health centre, as there are many things you won’t be able to control during pregnancy. To prevent all the risks and complications is your best shot to keep yourself and your future baby safe. Couples who are suffering from the following health conditions must get pre-pregnancy care:
- Either the male partner or the female partner suffering from HIV, diabetes, or chronic illness
- Couples suffering from high blood pressure, heart disease, or kidney disease
- Women who have a history of miscarriages, stillbirth, or premature birth
- Couples who fear to pass on their genetic disorder to their child
- Female partner dealing with being underweight or overweight
- Male partner dealing with obesity
- Couples diagnosed with STD (Sexually Transmitted Diseases)
- Women who are above the age 30-35
Step 4: Encourage your partner to follow a healthy diet and lifestyle
The male partner’s reproductive health is as essential as the female partners’ to achieve a successful pregnancy. Poor diet and unhealthy lifestyles of men can lower their sperm count and semen quality, which can also cause infertility. Ask your man to:
- Quit drinking alcohol
- Quit smoking and all other kinds of tobacco
- Avoid using steroids
- Do not engage in illegal drugs
- Avoid spending too much time in a hot environment such as saunas, hot tubs, and steam rooms
- Follow a healthy diet which includes food items high in protein, vitamins, and iron
Also, some prescription medicines and over-the-counter medicines may affect the male partner’s sperm count. Talk to the best gynecologist and expert doctors, and create a list of all the do’s and don’ts to improve your sperm count and semen quality.
