Canada’s public health agency is sounding a note of caution about the Zika virus to women who want to get pregnant.
It’s advising Canadian women who visit countries where Zika is prevalent to wait at least two months upon returning home before trying to conceive,

mothers may have been infected during pregnancy.
Zika cases have reached epidemic levels in South and Central America, parts of Mexico and the Caribbean
