Getting Pregnant
Hi there, my fiance and I are getting married in February next year and soon afterwards would like to start for a child. What should I be doing in the meantime to prepare my body and what foods can we eat for fertility and what vitamins etc should I be taking. Should I visit my gynae for a check up? I' m on the pill at the moment - how long before we start should I go off the pill.
Thanks

The most important things are to stop alcohol and smoking and to take folate. Stop the Pill when you want to start trying to conceive. You could fall pregnant immediately or it could take several months It varies from person to person.
