When Should I Start Prenatal Vitamins

2 Replies
ParkersWife - June 18

My husband and I had a pregnancy scare this past month (Turns out I'm not pregnant! ) and we began to discuss when the right time to have a baby would be. We both want one & have decided to try after Christmas. December is 6 months away. My question is: When should I start taking prenatal vitamins? And should I go ahead and stop birth control and just use condoms? Any advice will be greatly appreciated! (I'm so excited!! ) :)

Hi Parkers wife and congratulations on your big decision. When I recently spoke to my gyno she suggested that i begin prenatal vitamins with 1000 mg of folic acid three months before i try to conceive and i believe she suggested getting off the pill at three months doing condoms month number 2 and trying month # 3. It may sound confusing but I would recommend a pre pregnancy consultation with your gyno. Best of luck

You can start taking prenatal vitamins as soon as you'd like its never to soon i dont think but definetly at least 3 months before and the same with getting off your BC my doctor told me to have 3 normal periods before trying. I also sudgest buying a book before trying, I bought what to expect when your expecting once i knew we were going to be trying shortly because there is some good information about things you can do before you get pregnant and such. I felt like it better prepared me and i knew what was going to be happening to my body before it happened. But good luck with your pre pregnancy month and conceiving . and remember to make it fun and special.
