It can: If u have known gall stones u are better off having surgery before u get preg because if u develop an attack or cholecystitis while u are pregnant it can be risky for u and the baby and very unpleasant at the least and the strong pain meds u would need are not good for the fetus.

How long should I try getting pregnant before calling my doctors?

6-12 months: This depends on how old you are to start with. If you are < 35 years old and healthy you should wait a year before getting too worried. If you are >35 years old or have medical problems or have had problems getting pregnant before, you should see your doctor after 6 months of trying.

With something else: There are spermicidal gels and foams that are great used in conjunction with condoms but they aren't sufficient by themselves.

Wait: Make a record of wife's menstrual cycle. The doctor may want to see 12 mos. Of this. Determine if she is ovulating by getting her temperature in the morning. Both need to agree to see the doctor. Wife will see a gynecologist. Husband will see a urologist.

A 41-year-old female asked:
When should I start getting pregnant after a misscarriage?

1-3 months: You'll see different recommendations, but after an early miscarriage (1st trimester), most will say wait for 1-2 menstrual cycles. It makes sense to get at least one turnover of the uterine lining, and it will help you to time intercourse to match ovulation. It can take 1-3 months for your cycle to return. Stay on your pnv as well.
