Prenatal vitamins...and metallic taste.

So I have found out if I take my prenatals every single day like I am supposed to it leaves a horrible metallic taste in my mouth all day long. However, if I take it every other day there is no metallic taste. Why is this? And no bashing for not taking them every day...the reason I found this out is because I forgot one day. Thanks!

  • It's also possible that the taste isn't related to the vitamins and is just a symptom of the pregnancy. It's very common to have a metallic taste during the first trimester than slowly goes away as you get into the 2nd trimester.
