Tommy's - Planning a pregnacy
You've probably spent your adult life so far trying to avoid getting pregnant, so planning a pregnancy is often a big change. A woman is fertile (able to get pregnant) for just a few days in each menstrual cycle after an egg is released from her ovary, but around 1 in 3 women get pregnant within a month, so it's best to be prepared for pregnancy before you stop contraception.
Tommy’s, in partnership with Public Health England (PHE), the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and the UCL Women’s Health Institute, has developed a digital tool to help women plan for pregnancy. The Planning for Pregnancy digital tool was launched on Thursday 14 June with a national campaign to drive awareness of the importance of pre-conception health.
