1st post for an excited lurker/newcomer!!
I am coming off the pill in 2 weeks (eek) and having a 2 month break before we start TTC number 1. I spoke to the Dr who said remember folic acid etc, but there are so many!!
What did everyone take whilst TTC and did your other half take anything? Recommendations appreciated everyone.

Hi GS and welcome to Mumdrum, congratulations on TTC. We took the pregnacare conception his and hers vitamins which contains folic acid and a few other vitamins. I think its just a case of having a look and deciding which one would suit you and your needs best. Good luck with your TTC journey

I think I just ad regular pregnacare both times, and then just carried on taking once pregnant right up until stopping breastfeeding (12m). I have to say, this time I swapped or the Sanatogen ones because the pregnacare were starting to make me heave! The smell and taste of them finally got to me!
My hubby took Wellman conception and reckoned they were brilliant. His nails were stronger and he reckoned (tmi) his spunk was thicker. Or something like that, lol. I have to say, he didn't take them long second time around as they can be linked to aggression etc and he felt he was starting to be affected by them. Seeing as we fell first month both times, I'm not sure whether these things hoped or not, but you never know!
Anyway, best of luck!

I've started taking the pregnacare vitamins with folic acid (3 months before intending to start ttc), these are the ones I took last time. They seem to include all the vitamins you need & they're 3 for 2 in Tescos which is a bonus!

I had colic acid on prescription plus a multi vit. H takes multi vit, zinc, magnesium and Vit C anyway x

You should take folic acid 3 months prior to Ttc, if your bmi is over 30, or you have crohns or other chronic illnesses affecting digestion/absorption then you need the higher dose folic acid (5mg) that your gp will prescribe.
