I have PCOS and I'm ttc if I take prenatals and fertility blend from GNC could that help me get pregnant?

I have PCOS and I'm ttc if I take prenatals and fertility blend from GNC could that help me get pregnant?

No data to support: Even though taking prenatal vitamins is an excellent thing to do for prevention of neural tube defects & if you're trying to get pregnant that is certainly a recommended action to take, however, there is no scientific data to support the use of any of the supplements @ GNC or elsewhere that will improve the chances of getting pregnant. I read the label on Fertility Blend. Misleading information. ...Read more

If i am pregnant can i continue taking 5000 mcg of biotin if prenatal pills do not contain biotin and trubiotics one a day?

If i am pregnant can i continue taking 5000 mcg of biotin if prenatal pills do not contain biotin and trubiotics one a day?

5000 mcg of biotin: daily seems like an awful lot. The amount the Institute of Medicine has determined is adequate for pregnant women is 30 mcg/day! Usually it is fairly easy to get this in the diet from well-cooked eggs, wheat germ, whole grain bread and cereal. Trubiotics are probiotics, I believe. Discuss taking these with your obstetrician; she/he may recommend an alternative or discontinuation altogether. ...Read more

I found online a product call vitex fruit pills im taking to regulate my cycles and ovulate normally can it help me with getting pregnant?

I found online a product call vitex fruit pills im taking to regulate my cycles and ovulate normally can it help me with getting pregnant?

No proof whatsoever: I assume you're referring to vitex brand of chaste berry. One of the major issues w/dietary supplements is that we don't have randomized double-blind placebo-controlled trials demonstrating effectiveness & safety. Moreover, in the states, there's no 3rd party oversight monitoring safety in manufacturing. Go to http://goo.Gl/m7alhd (www.Webmd.Com) for basic info but i'd suggest you chat w/your doc. ...Read more

Can you take black mores preconception tablets if you have an under active thyroid . Trying to improve my chances of conceiving?

Ineffective: That product, like any other false promise for improved fertility, will not improve your chances at making a baby. Best to do is to have sex on the days before ovulation with a male who has effective sperm. ...Read more

Are prenatal vitamin and fertility vitamin same? Which one I should take to become pregnant? These vitamins to become pregnant are confusing me. My gyn doctor told me to take folic acid. I have try to become pregnant for a year now. It seem like it never

Are prenatal vitamin and fertility vitamin same? Which one I should take to become pregnant? These vitamins to become pregnant are confusing me. My gyn doctor told me to take folic acid. I have try to become pregnant for a year now. It seem like it never

Prenatal : Prenatal vitamins and Folic Acid are important to take prior to conceiving becuase they will help create a environment to maintain a healthy fetus as far as growth and development, especially the folic acid. The Folic Acid helps protect against neural tube defects. If you can't afford both i would say the Folic Acid is more important. Your doctor may actually have samples of pre-natal vitamins, they can also be bought pretty inexpensively at your local pharmacy or grocery store. The Clomid (clomiphene) is the pill that will help you ovulate and hopefully become pregnant. You can buy OPK kits online very inexpensively. A simple internet search can direct you to many sites that sell them at cost. Don't give up! best of luck. ...Read more

I prefer natural and i want to take selenium and vit e and milk thistle however i don't want pills. Is it possible that i would get enough from diet?

It depends...: It partly depends on your definition of "enough." this is easiest with selenium; optimal dose is 100-200 mcg; 2-4 brazil nuts/day can supply this- see http://www.Whfoods.Com/genpage.Php?Dbid=95&tname=nutrient you can get the rda of vit e from foods like spinach, chard, sunflower seeds etc. But optimal doses are hard to get from diet. Milk thistle extracts are not part of our diet- see comment:. ...Read more

Hi i'm taking folic acid, is there other vitamins i can take trying to conceive? Is there anything my partner can take to help with his sperm quality

Hi i'm taking  folic acid, is there other vitamins i can take trying to conceive? Is there anything my partner can take to help with his sperm quality

Yes, many...: Taking vitamins may improve fertility if you are deficient. 1/3 of people can't convert Folic Acid to the active form so taking the 5-mthf form is best. Selenium & zinc are essential for sperm formation. The herb rhodiola can improve male & female fertility.

Will taking the slim quick weight loss pills reduce your chance of pregnancy? I was going to start taking slimquick until i read online that you can lose your fertility. Does this mean just while you're taking the pills or forever? We want to get pregnant

Hello. : Hello. There aren't good studies on this. Some of the slim quick products contain chaste tree. Chaste tea may increase increase menstrual flow. Chaste tree can also interact with birth control drugs and fertility drugs. I would take a look at the long list of possible side effects that a person could experience with many of the compounds that are in slim quick, before i would use it. It is eye opening. ...Read more
