Do I need to have a checkup before trying to get pregnant?

A checkup before getting pregnant would be wise.  Also, before getting pregnant it would be a plus to stay healthy, eat well and start prenatal vitamins – especially Folic Acid – for at least 3 months before getting pregnant.  Avoiding alcohol, tobacco and drugs is especially important.  Maintaining good control of diabetes, hypertension, thyroid problems and other diseases are equally important.
