Hi, I have been married for 9 years and been trying for a child. I have been reading a lot of article on oil pulling.
My main questions is oil pulling safe for planning a pregnancy and for someone who is pregnant. What I know is oil pulling is a detox program. I would like to try but I'm having the fear of using it. Thank you.
Personally, I would be comfortable oil pulling when not pregnant. You can stop if you find out that you have conceived.

Is oil pulling safe during pregnancy?
My understanding has been that you should avoid doing things during pregnancy that cause detox, as toxins released could get to the baby. Unfortunately, the same recommendation holds during breastfeeding, so you end up having a long time where it is not best to do things that detox the body. Of course, in some ways the body is always detoxing…elimination channels are taking out toxins and waste regularly; the idea is just that you don't want to do extra detoxing while you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Now, midwives do sometimes recommend epsom salt baths (to stop pre-term contractions) and that can be detoxing. Perhaps it is milder. Though you wouldn't want to take a super-hot bath as it can raise the temperature of the baby.
If you are looking to do general detoxing, it would be best to wait. If you have a specific issue in your mouth you are dealing with, there may be some other things that would be better to try while pregnant.
Alexa: To improve the body’s detoxification and ensure the health of the baby, substantially increase Calciferous vegetables in the diet (in the least); in the most take extracted supplements of DIM, I3C, Sulforaphane.
