Some environmental pollutants may be harmful to a developing baby. Here's a list of them: Lead: In gasoline, water pipes, solders, storage batteries, construction material, paints, dyes and wood preservatives. Mercury: Fish contaminated with mercury have been linked to cerebral palsy and microcephaly. PCBs: Once again found in fish, birds. Limit your intake of fish while you are pregnant. Pesticides: Human exposure to pesticides is common because they are used extensively. Those of most concern contain several agents - DDT, chlordane, heptachlor and lindane. There are a number of harmful agents to avoid while you are pregnant. A book that I got when I was pregnant is called "Your Pregnancy Week by Week" and it is very informative for this type of question. I hope the information I provided was what you were looking for and I hope you found it useful. Stacey

You have been on the pill for over 10 years your husband an you are tying to get pregnant What are the chances you get pregnant right away?

It is impossible to tell. Sme women get pregnant straight away. I did, I came off the pill in Augustafter 11 years, used a condom for 4 months to check my cycle then got pregnant the very first month. Some women struggle to get pregnant, but whether because of the pill or not it is difficult to say, some women who have never used contraception cannot get pregnant either.
