Depends: The timing is not as important as you taking it regularly. Compliance is criticsl take it with food since it can make you nauseated.

Any w/enough Folate (folic acid): The main thing that distinguishes prenatal vitamins from regular multivitamins is the presence of additional Folate (folic acid) or Folic Acid, consumption of which has been shown to decrease risk of neural tube defects. But because this part of the body develops even before missing one's period, it's imperative to start taking prenatal vitamins as soon as one stops using contraception.
