1346723 tn?1300718741 After the fourth week of embryonic development (which is the sixth week from the last period), when the spinal column closes, there is no particular need for extra vitamins. It is reasonable at that point to stop taking vitamins until the nausea has passed. If you really want to take some sort of vitamin, a children's chewable kind sometimes goes down easier. The downside to vitamin supplementation It's unhealthy to take more than one multivitamin a day.
Avatar f tn Yesterday me and my husband did unprotected coitus. Is it possible that i can get pregnant this time? how should i know when is the best time to get pregnant? Kindly help. Thank you.
Business woman2 No vitamins help you get pregnant. There are vitamins to take that some believe are important while a baby is developing called prenatal vitamins. folic acid is the key ingredient there. But until you are pregnant, you can take just a good multi vitamin or a prenatal if you feel so inclined. However, these do not enhance fertility. Wishing you luck.
Avatar f tn I had RX prenatals when I had my IUD removed but they were almost $60 a month!! My OB told me my Target Up & Up brand were just as good, haha.

1042487 tn?1275279899 Even if you are unaware of it when you run out of these you are experiencing withdrawals. The real energy is in good nutriments. Good vitamins and minerals intake is critical when talking about energy and especially the vitamins B. The B vitamins act as coenzymes, compounds that unite with a protein component called an apoenzyme to form an active enzyme. The enzyme then acts as a catalyst in the chemical reactions that transfer energy from the basic food elements to the body.
Avatar f tn The body performs different functions at different times of the day. Many people suggest adding food supplements at varied times of the day to accommodate for the digestion and assimilation of these nutrients. At night, many suggest taking calcium. This is because calcium is utilized at night, and also because calcium can help you get to sleep when taken at bed time. Remember the adage of a glass of milk before bed? Calcium absorption is the reason this makes sense.

7459788 tn?1402783404 Should already have been taking them. It's best to have three months' lead time on the folic acid supplement in them. But you're probably fine, just start today. And if you're not pregnant, stay on them if you're trying.
Avatar m tn will probably prescribe differently then he/she did when not pregnant. I also always double checked with my pharmacist as to what was safe before taking anything...including over the counter medications. Your Dr. truly is the best person to help you make this decision. I work closely with the homeless population and worked almost until the end of my pregnancy, but I don't have your history either. I was careful to ensure I got my flu shots, etc.
Avatar n tn I was 5 weeks 5 days when I found out and I went at 6 weeks to confirm and get a doctor. Best to do the same if you have insurance or a way to pay for it and start taking prenatal vitamins. If you have a few drinks stop drinking. I'm now 22 weeks 4 days with a boy.
Avatar f tn I got on bc pills to help regulate my cycles again. And when should i start taking prenatal vitamins? Someone please give good understandable advice.

Iam 8 wks pregnant not knowing what to expect (my first child) iam 31yrs old. Omg my breasts are so tender and i have implants too. They feel so hard. Does anyone have this problem?

Avatar f tn I never had a miscarriage but when I first found out I was pregnant this time, oh my gosh everytime I went to the bathroom or had a cramp I was sooo scared. If anyway possible just relax and don't worry to hard.
