Are they the same???

ok so my older sis is pregnant again with her 5th and DH and I have been TTC for about 3 years now. She told me to get some of her prenatal vitamins and it will make me fertile. Im like ok but i had just bought some from Wal-mart. So im wondering if the ones that the doc prescribed for her the same as the ones that I just bought. I mean they both do the same thing right? Just wondering

  • They are the same, but pre natal vitamins won't exactly help you get pregnant. You do need to be on them before concieveing though. I live on them.

  • They are the same, but prenatal vitamins do not make a person fertile. It is a very good idea to be taking them if you are trying to get pregnant though. I took them for 4 years straight during my TTC venture.
