  • im not sure about fertility supplements... im guessing they have to work if thats what it is... make sure you are taking prenatals... it will help your body get prepared to make a baby... what you should do is google it or call your doctor and ask them what their opinion is on it... good luck girl i wish you the best luck and health :)

  • I'd be cautious about supplements and talk with your doctor or a nutritionist who specializes in prenatal care. The label lists several minerals and fat-soluable vitamins at pretty high dosages which could actually be harmful to a fetus, especially in the first trimester.

    For example, Vitamin A exceeding 2600IU totaly daily intake is linked to toxicity in the latest prenatal health books - this amount includes what you get from food sources: fruits, vegetables, meats, dairy, etc.. National Institute for Health (www.nih.org) reports that americans who eat a healthy diet do not need a vitamin A supplement, especially since virtually all our foods are now fortified. Please be cautious and good luck.

  • DONT take a Pre-natal with the fertility supplement until talking to a specialist! Many Fertility supplements already have the Vit. right in them and you could OD
