I am taking something called pregnitude nd I just want to know does it really work?

I am taking something called pregnitude nd I just want to know does it really work?

Kudos for asking!: There are many sites with reviews of pregnitude. It can be difficult knowing which are credible and which are promotional. The pitch of "take it, it cannot hurt" is commonly directed at couples ttc. It is wise to ask for input from an expert. My suggestion is to not take unknowns without consent of an obgyn. I will share this with some of our subspecialists in reproductive and fertility medicine. ...Read more

Is pregnitude safe to continue when pregnant?

Is pregnitude safe to continue when pregnant?

Unknown: It might be safe, and in fact might be beneficial for preventing gestational diabetes (diabetes that occurs during pregnancy). Researchers in italy are recruiting for a clinical trial: http://clinicaltrials. Gov/ct2/show/nct01511835. However it has not been well studied so we really don't know for sure whether or not it is safe during pregnancy. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more

Can myo inositol and pregnitude be taken while pregnant?

Can myo inositol and pregnitude be taken while pregnant?

Yes, however...: Pregnitude has myo-inositol ; folic acid. It is safe to take during pregnancy. Myo-inositol has been shown to improve fertility in women with polycystic ovarian syndrome, but I don't know if it has any benefits in women without it.
Folic acid prevents neural tube defects but at least 30% of women have difficulty converting Folic Acid to the active form, l-5-mthf, so it is ideal to take l-5-mthf. ...Read more

Can I take pregnitude while on birthcontrol to improve my reproductive health?

You can: Take it. Be aware that in spite of the glowing claims made on the website, Pregnitude has not been shown to improve any measure of reproductive health, it's just marketing. Good wishes. ...Read more

Due to pcos I am told I have bad egg quality, I am recommended myoinsitol to help improve egg quality, will taking pregnitude help with quality?

Due to pcos I am told I have bad egg quality, I am recommended myoinsitol to help improve egg quality, will taking pregnitude help with quality?

Perhaps: Egg quality is very difficult to define. Pregnitude or myoinositol may increase ovulation in women with pcos or ovulatory dysfunction. Myoinositol improves Insulin sensitivity. Pcos patients often have abnormalities in Insulin function and an improvement in Insulin sensitivity may help pcos patients to ovulate. Each persons situation is different. Please talk with your doctor about pregnitude. ...Read more

Pregnitude good for women without pcos but trying to conceive?

Pregnitude good for women without pcos but trying to conceive?

Pregnitude: Personally I doubt it: there are 2 very limited studies to my knowledge, both looking at women with glycemic abnormalities, one was an ivf study. These studies were 'optimistic, ' but not overwhelming. I'm sure it won't hurt to take it, but I'm unconvinced that it's been proven to do much. Your call! ...Read more

I went to the doctor today and she diagnosed me with pcos, and has me taking pregnitude. Is this going to do me any good, and long will it take?

I went to the doctor today and she diagnosed me with pcos, and has me taking pregnitude. Is this going to do me any good, and long will it take?

May help: Pregnitude contains myo-inositol which has some research support in improving ovulatory function in women with pcos. Here is a supportive link:

http://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pubmed/21744744

it may or may not help so it's not possible to predict how long it will take. If not pregnant within 6 months of regular cycles, seek help with a fertility specialist. ...Read more

Can I take pregnancy prep by vitanica and pregnitude while ttc with pcos?

Can I take pregnancy prep by vitanica and pregnitude while ttc with pcos?

Pregnitude OK: There is some reassuring and even exciting research to show that pregnitude may help some women with pcos improve their chance of pregnancy. Pregnancy prep by vitanica does not have the research to demonstrate its safety or effectiveness, so that is not one I can feel confident in recommending. Good luck! ...Read more

I'm taking prenatals, reproductive health, and pregnitude will it they help me get pregnant and can I get sick from to much folic acid?

They help: I always suggest healthy lifestyles, including supplements. Still, you need to track ovulation and time intercourse. Get tested when not pregnant after 6-12 mo based on age. ...Read more

3rd day taking pregnitude for pcos, is it normal to have bitter metallic taste in mouth and lips all the time?

3rd day taking pregnitude for pcos, is it normal to have bitter metallic taste in mouth and lips all the time?

Possibly see your OB: It is so new that your experiences & others trying it will provide some of the data. It sounds like it may be related to estrogen/hormone levels & pregnancy, so I would think that the"dysgeusia" we are used to seeing in the first trimester with a bitter or metallic taste, may be similar with pregnitude treatment for pcos, polycystic ovarian disease. Ask your OB to contact the drug manufacturer. ...Read more

I have pcos[ irregular period, testrogens high, overweight] I am using pregnitude, gymnema, vitd, prenatals, exercise and diet! Is it ok to use all?

I have pcos[ irregular period, testrogens high, overweight] I am using pregnitude, gymnema, vitd, prenatals, exercise and diet! Is it ok to use all?

Should be fine: I don't see any interactions between these medications; they should be fine together. The only potential complication I see is overdoing the vitamin d; prenatals should cover your basic needs for most vitamin supplementation. ...Read more
