Getting Pregnant (Definition)

Conception is the act of the man's sperm attaching to and entering ("fertilizing") the woman's egg. This fusion leads to the creation of an embryo.

I'm trying to get pregnant and I've been trying for a year now and nothing What could I do to help getting pregnant or is there something wrong?

Access to a doc?: 85-90% of totally normal couples conceive with unprotected sex in 1 year, whether they are trying or not, so "infertility" is defined in medicine by failing to conceive in 1 year. By this reasoning you (or your partner) are highly likely to have a problem slowing you down. I don't know how access to fertility care is in Canada but highly recommend seeing a doctor to start problem solving. GL! ...Read more

Does it make sense to get a liposuction just before getting pregnant?

No: I would strongly recommend you wait until after pregnancy before you consider any type of body contouring procedure. Your body will change with pregnancy and may require a different contouring procedure such as an abdominoplasty or tummy tuck. ...Read more

May be.: If you are planning on pregnancies in the near future, best to wait on having any type of body contouring surgery at this point. Complete pregnancies, achieve a long-term stable weight, and then evaluate to see whether you will need the help of a plastic surgeon to achieve your goals. Best wishes. ...Read more

I have been trying to get pregnant and I'm not getting pregnant. Does this mean I can't have children 
?

Not necessarily: We usually tell women that are trying to conceive not to be concerned about a problem until they have been trying to get pregnant for at least a year. This means having regular sex around the time of your most fertile period which is 14 days after the first day of your period. If you have been trying for a year then both you and your partner need to get a check up and labs. Good luck ...Read more
