  • They're high in iron, which can upset your stomach.

  • No you shouldnt. My mom takes parenatal vitamins she has for years, her doctor told her she should and she doesnt get sick. But it could upset your stomach so you should eat something or drink milk when you take them.

  • prenatal vitamins, parental was hilarious.

    right the iron content can constipate you, and if you're not used to taking vitamins sure it'll make ya feel different

    consult your doctor if you're worried

  • I cant take any extra iron even in vitamins or i get sick from it. SOme ppl dont need extra iron so that is usually why. Your body is rejecting it.

  • I have never been able to take prenatals at all. No matter when I take them. They just make me sick. I take a normal vitamin pack for a woman under 50 and hope that cuts it. Ask your doctor for other options.
