Use up the remainder: If a woman is in good health with good nutrition, the added vitamins from prenatal vitamins are not noticeable to her body. The Folic Acid in the prenatal vitamins does help decrease the chance of a certain type of serious birth defect (called a neural tube defect). If expecting to get pregnant again soon, she can stay on prenatal vitamins. Otherwise, she can use a regular multivitamin.
