Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

I need to start taking this. Is the bog standard basic tesco stuff ok? I saw that they had loads of specific pre-pregnancy vitamins, are they worth taking? (The cynic in me assumes they are a con but I'd be easily swayed.)

Yep that's what I take and I got them on three for two :)

Not sure where you are in the country, but Vit D is now also a must for ladies in Scotland As such, I just take the Boots Conception Plus, it's always on 3 for 2 so is £7.98 for three month supply. I also take evening primrose oil to increase my *ahem* mucus. £1.99 for 30 tablets, 2 a day until ovulation (you must stop taking it once you ovulate), always on 3 for 2, so £3.98 for three month supply.

I take bog standard folic acid and this month I have been taking D3 for the first time. I read somewhere that it helps to make your eggs and EWCM healthier.

I take Boots own folic acid with Vit D. Much cheaper than the pregnacare type vitamins. I checked with the pharmacist as there were so many to choose from and he told me that as long as you have a healthy balanced diet and no underlying health problems then bog standard folic acid & vit D was fine whilst ttc.

Hmm, I swear I replied to this. Thanks everyone. I've bought some basic stuff. I might be getting some stronger Vit D from the Doctor anyway as my levels are quite low.

Picked up my evening primrose oil today again. It's actually only 99p a bottle, so £1.98 for three months worth!

Late to this, but I would take the folic acid and Vitamin D and then switch to Pregnacare when you get that BFP, The midwife suggested it too me to improve my iron level now instead of playing catch up later on :)

Just to say, if ur bmi over 30 or you have crohns, digestive issues or history of fetal abnornalites in family you need high dose folic acid which is 5mg and can only be prescribed by the gp x
