Will liquid Geritol help to conceive quicker?

No: Geritol is not known to help you conceive. If you are trying to conceive, its best to be on pre-natal vitamins rather than Geritol. Best wishes! ...Read more

Can taking geritol liquid stop you from getting a period ?

Not likely: I've not heard of anyone taking geritol liquid to stop a period. I'm assuming you are talking about the vitamin supplement, that is advertised for seniors. If you are sexually active consider checking a pregnancy test if you missed your period. ...Read more

Will liquid Geritol help? I've been trying to get pregnant since high school

It couldn't hurt.: Geritol, or any vitamin supplement could help you conceive, in particular if you had some vitamin or iron deficiency that it helped to correct. However, if you have been unable to get pregnant, and have been trying for 12 years, then I feel you really need to see a doctor to talk with you, examine your, and do some tests to help figure out what is the problem. ...Read more

Hello. : Hello. Geritol is a brand of multivitamin which has extra iron and is manufactured by glaxo-smith-kline. Iron content is between 9.5 mg and 16 mg in tablets and liquid has 18 mg. It has been touted to help women become pregnant (anecdotal) however the average prenatal vitamin has about 30 mg of iron. Prenatal vitamins also have higher doses of Folic Acid which is very important. If you plan to get pregnant, prenatal vitamins are the way to go because of the added folate. ...Read more

I have to start geritol the day of your cycle or can you start before? What do I do?

I have to start geritol the day of your cycle or can you start before? What do I do?

Ask your doctor: Truthfully, it really doesn't matter. We used to associate the elderly w/Geritol. But presumably you're female (you didn't describe your gender although you mentioned your cycle) so you probably lose a bit of iron w/your menses, which is where Geritol comes in. Realistically, if that's the case, it really doesn't matter when you start, since we don't cycle vitamins as much as take them daily. ...Read more
