Frequency Of Intimate Relationships And Nutrition Needed For Pregnant Programs?
Hello, Doctor, I want to ask, Now that I have been married for 9 months, Can I consume Prenagen Esensis Milk, Ever E and Folavit to plan a pregnancy? ? Because I have heard that if we have daily contact, that will not produce children. Thank you, please answer doctor.
Good evening, thanks for the question
To prepare for pregnancy the mother should start taking supplements and nutrient-rich foods needed since the beginning of the developing fetus. The most crucial is in the early weeks of the formation of the central nervous system that is if folic acid is deficient, the risk of the fetus experiencing anencephaly or spina bifida. Some micronutrients needed by the mother since the beginning of pregnancy are folic acid, iron, vitamin D, calcium. These important substances are obtained from vegetables, fruit, meat and fish. But to facilitate absorption in the body because some of the above contents cannot be directly absorbed by the body after consumption, the alternative is to take supplements. Make sure that the supplements you consume contain these substances.
The following are the requirements needed to prepare for pregnancy:
- 400 units of vitamin D
- 250 milligrams of calcium
- 400-800 micrograms of folic acid
- 30 milligrams of iron
- 2 milligrams of copper
- 2 milligrams of vitamin B6
- 15 milligrams of zinc
- 50 milligrams of vitamin C
To plan a pregnancy it is important to know the woman's fertile period. A woman's fertile period is characterized by her egg being released into the fallopian tubes. The egg can last for 12-24 hours in the uterus until fertilization occurs by the sperm cell. While sperm cells alone can last for 3-5 days in a woman's uterus.
It is recommended to have sexual relations since before the fertile period on a regular basis, which is 3-5 days before the estimated fertility period until 1 day after the estimated fertility period. This means that at least the couple has sexual intercourse at least once every 3 days and can be dried as they approach the fertile period, so that a number of sperm remain in the uterus when ovulation occurs.
You can also consult an obstetrician in preparation for pregnancy for a more detailed examination.
That's all, hope you can help
