I never had much of a change in my complexion with prenatals. I noticed a little difference in my hair and nail growth though.

I've never noticed a correlation either...although last month I was severely anemic and had angular chelitis (splits at the corners of my mouth from iron deficiency).  I started taking an iron + B complex supplement on top of my prenatal and my skin is clear.  I never have clear skin, so maybe?

I have noticed nails,hair,energy. I also take fish oil, b12 when I need a energy boast.Cranberry pill because I had frequent female problems. It stopped after I have been taking them.Acne well I use a facial cleanser in the shower then seabreeze after.I also changed my makeup. I see a huge difference after getting of bc too. It was so annoying because I think it caused the flare ups.I hope it gets figured out soon even a doctor if it gets real bad.Gl

With my daughter  I got a bad reaction to the prenatal vitamins....don't remember what tho.

With my son, I broke out like crazy until the 2nd semester. It wasn't from the prenatal vitamins...it was from the pregnancy.

I've been taking prenatals for months...well about a year, and haven't had a change as far as more acne or not. I flare up around AF, that's it

I always notice hair and nails but not complexion. Have you started breaking out since starting them?

Usually I get one or 2 spots around af time but nothing serious. When I was pregnant with ds I broke out worse than I did when I was a teenager.

 Never noticed acne w/ my prenatals.  I take Naturemade Prenatal Multi +DHA

Its a softgel...and works better on my stomach.

Yes I started using prenatels in December and after 3 weeks, my skin was aweful!  I have always had a few here and there, but they are concentrated in one area and just wont clear up!!! :(

I did buy the store brand this time and I might try switching soon if this continues because I didnt get this when trying for our son last time.  And no I am not preggers so its not that causing it.
