Is it ok to take hair skin and nails vitamins during pregnancy?

Yes as long as...: A good skin hair and nails vitamin will have many of the same vitamins in a good prenatal. But it is important that the total amount of preformed Vit A totals less than 10.000 iu a day. But it is fine to take as much beta carotene as you wish. I advise taking DHA also. and 4000-8000 iu of Vit D3 a day to attain blood levels of 50-80. ...Read more

Can i still be protected against pregnancy if i were to mix multi vitamin packs with my birth control pill?

Yes- beneficial : Yes. I recommend that all women on oral contraceptives take vitamins. There is recent evidence that vit c & e may protect against oxidative stress induced by oral contraceptives.
