can taking prenatal vitamins while trying to get pregnant cause your period to be late?

Unlikely: But stress of any sort, including anxiety over getting pregnant, can delay your cycle. See your doctor for a pregnancy test. Taking a pre-natal vitamin before you conceive with at least .4 mg of Folic Acid (or folate)...Most have 1 mg .......Is excellent !
