What to do in the waiting period before your treatment

To increase your chances of getting pregnant, pay attention to the following:

  • Weight
    If your BMI is above 30, risk of complications during fertility treatment and pregnancy increases. If your BMI is less that 19, it can be difficult to get pregnant. You can use the waiting period to optimize your weight.
  • Smoking
    Smoking reduces the chance of becoming pregnant and increases the risk of pregnancy complications. Therefore, it is very important that neither you nor your partner smoke. You can seek help with smoking cessation from your own doctor.
  • Folic acid
    Folic acid prevent malformation of the spinal cord of the fetus. It is recommended that you take 400 µg folic acid daily, starting 3 months before you plan to become pregnant. Folic acid is available for purchase at the pharmacy.

We can recommend that you download the booklet: Involuntary infertility, see our website.
