Q&A: Are diet pills safe while trying to conceive?
Are diet pills which contain Ephedra safe while trying to conceive? I know once I find out I'm pregnant, I will immediately stop taking them, but what if it takes a while to conceive? I guess I'm concerned about harming my baby in those weeks before it's even possible to know whether or not I'm pregnant.
I have always felt that you should act as if you were pregnant while trying to conceive. The early weeks of pregnancy, before you even know that you are pregnant, are crucial to normal fetal development. While actively trying to conceive, eat a healthy diet, the same as you would eat if you were pregnant. Sometimes, eating a well-balanced diet full of fruits and vegetables will cause you to lose weight. If losing weight is such a priority for you, try to do so before trying to conceive.
