5875562 tn?1410898886 My husband and I tried getting pregnant for 8 months and nothing happened. I started taking pre natal vitamins and that next month I got pregnant. it doesn't really help you to get pregnant "faster" it's just to help supply your body with the right things before getting pregnant, which could definitely work.
10097605 tn?1407779560 I'm taking prenatal vitamins and wanted to get pregnant. Other than the vitamins, eating healthy, exercising, etc. what else can I do to help the chances that get pregnant?
1393778 tn?1280347609 Hi, im not sure if they help, but my doc told me its good to take prenatal vitamins even b4 i get pregnant cause they prepare your body for the baby. Its good to have the minerals and vitamins in your system already.
Avatar f tn Thank you :). Sometimes when you are overweight you don't ovulate or don't ovulate regularly and exercise can help you to ovulate more regularly. It's also a good idea to get in shape/ideal weight before baby because it helps reduce risk of preeclampsia, gestational diabetes Pre term labor among other things. If mom is eating right and exercising it is a good model for baby as they get older and then they will take on these healthy habits too.
Avatar n tn You can buy any prenatal vitamins with folic acid over the counter....
Avatar f tn Exercise daily and reduce weight if you are overweight. Get a prenatal checkup done and ask your doctor about prenatal vitamins like folic acid. Stay away from stress and exercise daily. If you are still unable to conceive contact your doctor. In that case you and your husband both may need evaluation .The common causes of infertility are blocked tubes, ovulation dysfunction, hyperprolactinemia, thyroid disorders, PID etc.
455110 tn?1205964069 This is not necessarily true....not ALL pregnant woman get shiney, thicker hair. Not to mention, just because they're vitamins, doesn't mean they can't be harmful to you. Prenatal vitamins have things that pregnant women need....otherwise, we'd just be told to take regular vitamins. I also recently saw a study linking too much folic acid when you're not pregnant to an increased risk of colon cancer. Prenatal vitamins have higher doses of folic acid...
Avatar n tn Have you been to a doctor to rule out why some reasons could be that you haven't been able to conceive? I know that my husband and I had been trying to conceive for about 8 months and then I started taking prenatal vitamins and conceived 1-2 months later. So if you haven't tried that, you might want to try that. I'm not saying it will help 100% but it's worth a shot, plus the vitamins do wonders for your hair and skin.
Avatar f tn Take your vitamins they arr super important for you and baby. If you cant afford them many docs can prescribe them to you. Its sooo normal to be tired itll go away maybe... eat lots of fresh fruit and vegies that helped me alot.
Avatar f tn Someone else also suggested a combination of regular vitamins to make sure you get everything you need. Talk to your doctor and see if they have any suggestions. Mine also gave me zofran to help with nausea in case i still get it with the OTC ones.
Avatar f tn It is recommended that you take them even while trying to conceive. Not everyone is trying, but once you find out you are pregnant, you definitely should start taking them.
Avatar f tn They are VERY inportand not only for baby but for mommy as well you need roughly 600 mcgs of folic acid while pregnant it will help with fatigue as well as give mommy benefits some benifits include healthier skin, hair growth, nail growth, etc. you need folic acid (vitamin B9) for a number of compelling reasons. Folic acid helps prevent neural tube defects (NTDs)—serious birth defects of the spinal cord (such as spina bifida) and the brain (such as anencephaly).
Avatar f tn Or take your prenatal vitamins at night. But you should definitely be taking some sort of vitamin while pregnant and breastfeeding.
5875562 tn?1410898886 I wish you the best of luck I pray we both get our positives
Avatar f tn In short no prenatal can't help you get pregnant however having a healthy lifestyle can contribute to being more fertile. You should keep taking them and read a book like "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" for some good points on how to get pregnant.
Avatar f tn I found out I was pregnant at 4 1/2 months and hadn't took en n e vitamins. And I always forget so I haven't really took any vitamins and I'm 34 weeks. Will it affect my baby?
Avatar f tn Three months, or at least three months of folic acid before trying to get pregnant. You could also boost your iron. I had my doctor look at the label of the kind of prenatals I took and she said they were fine. That's the easiest way to tell.
Avatar f tn Two Flintstones vitamins equal the same stuff as most prenatals so that might help you. I always take mine after I eat or I throw them up, and that was true of any vitamin I took before I was pregnant.
Avatar f tn theyre full of vitamins that are good for you and the baby. Vitamins you most likely dont get enough of from food alone. I took them even when I wasnt pregnant...
Avatar f tn Target, Walgreens and CVS have very decent OTC prenatals to get you started. If/when you become pregnant your OB will probably recommend a prenatal for you. Good luck!
Avatar f tn Sore bought normally don't have as much iron and stuff. That is why prescription one make you more sick. You pick by choosing one that has what you are looking for. If you eat well then store bought is better because you can find one with dha, which comes mostly from fish and lots of fish is a no no while pregnant. If you don't eat well then a prescription vitamins may have more of what you need. I had to have one with stool softener in it so I had to get prescribe one.
Avatar f tn I get free prenatal vitamins at Meijer. Do you have a Meijer where you live?
Avatar f tn Help please, my husband and I have been trying to fall pregnant for 2 months with little success, so I started taking prenatal vitamins in order to help prepare my body, but for the past 3 days my skin is quite bad, pimples on my back, neck and face (a lot more than usual) has any body else had this?
282955 tn?1394730951 That being said it is always worth trying different brands of prenatal vitamins but it if IS the vitamins causing the constipation then its unlikely a different brand will help since most vitamin pills are essentially identical in composition. Have you tried fiber pills or metamucil? Both of these are acceptable to take while pregnant.
