Goal: To improve concern of fertile women about the importance of preconception and conception nutrition
Pregnancy is a physiologic matter, but the concern of fertile women in Indonesia, especially Padang City about their pregnancy only started at 5-7 weeks of pregnancy. Loss to follow up usually happened in this period. While embryogenesis period happened since conception which from ovulation period, so the embryogenesis period is not optimal, It caused many complication during pregnancy and birth such abortus, congenital defect, pre-eclamptia, etc. The expectation of fertile women to get information about menstrual cycle is really high but difficult to do. The writer’s opinion is the importance of counseling integration about menstrual cycle especially about fertile women’s ovulation period individually, by government program that called premarital screening, so the data will be accurate and will have a good feedback.
