Caution...: It is definitely a risk to get pregnant at this age but certainly not impossible especially if you are otherwise healthy. It would definitely be great to lose weight in order to reduce the risks of pregnancy at this time. If you follow up closely with a specialist in this area (OB or Perinatologist) and you stay healthy it can certainly happen with a good outcome. ...Read more

I have habit of eating raw rice frequently im NT able to control myself.! planning to get pregnant n m scared if it will effect bad? Any solution?

A habit to break...: Raw rice won't harm your pregnancy unless it is contaminated with a germ that can harm your pregnancy. When rice is cooked, all the germs are killed and its the best way to eat rice when you are pregnant. You should work on breaking this habit prior to "trying" to get pregnant. Get help from a therapist if you can't do it on your own. Best wishes! ...Read more
