Did anyone start taking prenatals while they were TTC?

If so do you think it helped with the conception?

  • I didn't do the prenatals but I did take folic acid and no didn't help with TTC but helps for a healthy baby!

  • IT WONT HELP CNCEPTION. THEYRE JUST VITAMINS. BUT THEYRE GOOD TO TAKE ANYTIME

  • Not before my first pregnancy, but I never went off of them after that--took them for nearly 10 years. I don't think they had much bearing on my ability to conceive, but I'm sure they helped both me and my babies.

  • Our decision to have a child was so abrupt that I didn't have time to think about taking prenatal vitamins. But no I don't think it helps in conception at all.

  • Of course. ALL women who are TTC should take them or at the very least take Folic Acid.

    It won't help you get pregnant but will protect your future baby from nueral tube defects and help to create a healthy environment for baby.

  • My doc told me to take them, but I don't know if it helps with conception. I think I am taking them for folic acid and nueral tube like the other lady's said.
