Trying to conceive

Only me again haha! I am thinking about taking them as well as my folic acid
Just wondering if anyone takes preconception vitamins?! If so which one's do you take?
Any to avoids?

I'm not as taking high dose of folic acid and these have folic acid in too so will be too much. I don't think excessive folic acid is a good thing

Interesting, I looked at this before, and Found that you can't have too much folic acid as your body gets rid of what it doesn't need? Is this outdated advice now?
I will be on high dose folic acid too

I have been taking the Seven Seas Trying for a Baby and Evening Primrose Oil up to ovulation. Prior to my op I only took Folic Acid.

Ah will take a look at those!
Before I just took folic acid and vitamin D but want to try something a little different this time around.

Ah I was just coming on to ask this very question!
09/02/2015 at 18:22
Ah good thinking!
I have just looked and Asda have the seven sea's one's for 3 for £10 :)
I took Pregnacare with Agnes. This time I've only taken folic acid and I've already had 2 chemical pregnancies this year. So I'm going back to Pregnacare, lol!

Hey Counter - Nice to see you! Sorry to hear about your 2 chemical pregnancies :(
I took pregnacare when pregnant both times and It made me feel pretty sick and I had awful tasting burps not good when you have indigestion lol!

Sorry to hear about your chemical pregnancies Counter *hugs*
I'm take Prenacare Conception and EPO up until ovulation. I then take Flaxseed from ov onwards.
I don't believe you can overdose on FA, your body just rids of it.

That's what I thought Tayto - But I am willing to be proved wrong :D!
What do you take EPO for?

I've just started taking Pregnacare too (I just took folic acid previously). I got them on 3 for 2 at Tesco luckily as they are expensive!
Sorry to hear about your chemical pregnancies Counter.

I think you're right CC!
EPO is to improve cervical fluid/mucus - I still don't get EWCM but have noticed an improvement in the creamy & watery type fluid.

Oh cool! Yay! Keep using it haha!

I used EPO up to OV when we were TTC, but i was taking it right through my cycle before we started so that it was in my system.

I started with just folic acid for a couple of weeks then got recommended the seven seas trying for a baby and they are brilliant. They are in a packet a bit like a contraceptive pill with days so it's difficult to miss one :)
