A good personal hygiene especially on the vagina is necessary. Ask your doctor what simple steps to take in case you have fungal problem, in most cases you do not need to see a doctor.

Pregnancy: If you are pregnant, discuss with your doctor if you can travel. In certain case, you many find that you are unable to take a vaccination because of the pregnancy. Moreover, during the first three and the last three months of the pregnancy miscarriages are common, it is therefore advisable to be close to a hospital.
In most places, prenatal care is available, in remote rural villages however, facilities are unavailable. Pregnant women have to travel for a long distance before they can attend to a health clinic.
