Learn why it's important to protect yourself from environmental toxins - especially pregnant women or those trying to conceive.
Reducing exposure to toxic environmental agents is a critical area of intervention for obstetricians, gynecologists, and other reproductive health care professionals. Exposure to toxic environmental chemicals and other stressors during preconception, as well as during pregnancy, can have a profound and lasting effect on reproductive health throughout life.
Prenatal exposure to certain chemicals is known to increase the risk of cancer in childhood. Adult male exposure to pesticides is linked to altered semen quality, sterility, and prostate cancer. And, postnatal exposure to some pesticides can interfere with all developmental stages of reproductive function in adult females, including puberty, menstruation and ovulation, fertility and fecundity, and menopause.
