The fertility specialist also explained when to plan a pregnancy after a viral disease. Many factors influence the planning of pregnancy to one degree or another. Including the time of year, weight, general well-being in case a viral illness has recently taken place. “If we talk about the ideal time for conception, it is rather the beginning of autumn - September, because over the summer everyone rested, gained health, ate fruits, vegetables, and herbs. In a word, everything that has a positive effect on emotional and reproductive health, too,”said Gayane Kaloeva, obstetrician-gynecologist, reproductologist, talking to ridus.ru. Before planning conception, the doctor recommends women to normalize their weight. Kaloeva explains this simply - in most cases, while waiting for the baby to be born, the expectant mother gains weight, and this is not easy for health. With regard to previous viral diseases (for example, influenza), women should wait a break in the cycle. If people have had COVID-19, then both men and women should refrain from conceiving for three months. “We study the semen analysis of men before and after the disease. Its quality is actually deteriorating. Due to the coronavirus, thrombosis occurs - that is, the blood thickens strongly - and this affects spermatogenesis. The appearance of spermatozoa, so to speak, becomes "ugly" and their mobility suffers. But these processes are reversible. Within three months, new sperm and eggs mature,”explained the reproductive specialist. In addition, a pause of a month should be given to women who have recently had a CT scan or X-ray.
