Confusing post: If by pre-natal pills you mean prenatal vitamins, yes they can be taken along with iron. They really have no direct effect on conception but may help you be in better condition to carry a pregnancy once it happens. Balanced nutrition, good sleep habits, exercise & freedom from illness go a long way to help you.
