  • Yes and no. Getting healthy helps any woman to get pregnant but any daily vitamin will help.

  • fingers crossedwhen i was trying to get pregnant my dr stated me on Folic Acid. I would start on that now. you can also have your hubby take a daily vitamin as well. I cant remember exactly what it is, Lycopene possibly. Google it. Because there are things that the man can do as well. Good Luck!!

  • Yes. If you are not conceiving due to a missing vitamin/mineral.

  • FertilAid ...I heard those do but I don't know about prenatal vitamins but it is a good idea to take one every day.

  • Prenatal vitamins are vitamins to help get your body ready for a baby, so if you are planning to conceive or TTC, it wouldn't be a bad idea to start taing some, you can get them over the counter at local drug stores or even at walmart. I am currently taking FertilAid, it is an over the counter fertility supplement, it increases your chances of fertility by increasing your cervical mucous and it also contains some off the same things found in prenatal vitamins. I also take a folic acid supplement, which they say is good for every woman of child bearing age to take. hope this helps

  • If you are TTC I would take a prenatal. The longer you take a prenatal (up to months) before conceiving.. the more the future baby benefits. Also.. it CAN help if you're not conceiving due to vitamin deficiencies. I would also recommend taking extra folic acid if you are overweight. Also.. make sure you get plenty of Vitamin D and Omega-3's.
