When you were TTC..

Did you take Folic Acid
A regular prenatal Vit or
My dr proscribed Folic Acid and it's 50.00 I have no problems buying it, but I was just wondering if taking a prenatal would be the same thing and a bit cheaper. TIA

  • I never took anything while I was ttc. The first two pregnancies we had no problem conceiving quickly...the last time it took a little longer than normal, but I don't think it had to do with taking anything or not.

  • I am TTC#3 and took and am taking prenatal vitamins. You are supposed to take Folic Acid because it can prevent some birth defects.

  • Prenatals have folic acid, but not as much as what your doctor probably prescribed. I just took prenatals and so far everything looks good.

  • I take prenatal vitamins, and if I don't take that (for whatever reason) I take folic acid. If your doctor wrote you a prescription it must be because they believe folic acid is more of what you need to take for you and your baby.
