Trying to conceive

following on from Figaro's post. Does anyone use vitamins that are specifically for conception?
I use Pregnacare Conception but it is kinda expensive. I don't seem to have any issues with them but I'm thinking of switching to the Boots own brand 'Conception Support' when I finish this box.
Does anyone use the Boots own ones and how do you find them? Also, does anyone have any issues with Pregnacare Conception?

I just used folic acid when ttc, however I have heard good things about the boots conception ones. If you look at the box they probably have exactly the same ingredients as pregnecare.

I found when I was pregnant with p that most of the vitamins have the same stuff in them. I've never used more than folic acid and b6 for conception.

I used to take the high dose folic acid, EPO up till ov and I went through a phase where me and all the mttcers were drinking grapefruit juice ore ov and pineapple juice post ov
H took zinc and selenium

Waaaaah cp I'd forgotten about all the juice drinking!!!! Will have to stock up for next cycle!!

Yes but remember flounder got all scientific and discovered too much grapefruit caused hostile environment for the sperm
It was funny that all the mttcers basically bought the country's stock of juices

Before we started ttc we both took a gender specific multi vitamins, since i came off the pill we use zita west vitamins think mine is called pregnancy plan and H's is called vitamen. No idea if they are doing anything as we are only on cycle two.

I remember sainsburys had a multibuy deal on juice one month and so i stocked up and we literally couldn't fit milk in the fridge. H though i'd lost the plot!!

I'm taking the Pregnacare Conception ones however first time around I just took folic acid.

We are both taking the Healthspan conception tablets - not sure how they compare price wish but I get all my vitamins/supplements from there

I know I'm not TTC, but I occasionally lurk around when I'm on MD,
I took pregnacare mostly, but hubby had Wellman Conception. He reckoned they made his 'stuff' thicker (like rope -his words, not mine!) and so that probably helped us fall quicker both times? They only downside was he reckoned it made him a bit bad tempered, but I guess that is maybe something to do with testosterone?
Good luck, and keep on those pills! (I took mine before, during and whilst bf so feel like I've been rattling around for over 2years now!
