I [Micaela] recently published a paper in PLoS Biology proposing that the risk of Zika infection to pregnant women can be reduced using a window of opportunity for conception that will align sensitive periods of gestation with the low-transmission season for Zika. You can watch me discuss Zika and seasonally-planning conception in a recent interview below, and I also have a Zika information page for pregnant women (here). The data used for this research, as well as the R package I developed, can be downloaded from Dryad (here).
