Through preconception counselling, physicians can guide patients on healthy eating habits, ensuring that the body gets the required nutrients for reproduction and recommend necessary supplements to support reproductive health.

Identifying genetic risks: There is an examination process of some potential risk of genetic disorders or hereditary illnesses being passed down to an unborn child. For instance, they might review family medical histories or even indicate a need for genetic testing to determine possible risks and other options.

Medical practitioners can assist you in quitting harmful habits, managing stress and adopting healthy lifestyles through preconception counselling to enhance the likelihood of getting pregnant faster.
