Preconception Visits

Schedule a preconception visit with an OB/GYN to discuss how to prepare for pregnancy and optimize your preconception health.

The best prenatal care begins long before you conceive.

There are a lot of things you can start doing months ahead of time to prepare your body to become pregnant and improve pregnancy outcomes.

A preconception visit may include a physical check-up, but it’s mainly an opportunity to talk with your doctor about your personal fertility outlook and potential roadblocks. Your OB/GYN can help you optimize your and your partner’s preconception health and help with identifying your optimal times for conception.

You can expect to discuss the following at a preconception visit:

  • Medication adjustments, including birth control
  • Management of chronic conditions or health issues
  • Your family history and that of your partner
  • Your menstrual cycle (length of cycle, irregularities, issues)
  • Ovulation tracking and timing of intercourse
  • Vaccination updates

Our OB/GYNs are here to answer your questions and look forward to helping you start this exciting journey.
