What would happen if I take prenatal pills, birth control pills & iron pills at the same time?

In brief: Most likely, nothing

Prenatal vitamins are a really good multivitamin for any adult to take.
They often have some iron included, so i would only take the extra iron supplements if you know you are anemic. Taking birth control is hormonal control to prevent pregnancy. It is safe to take both prenatal vitamins and birth control together.

In brief: Too much iron

I would talk to your doctor about how much iron supplementation is safe for you specifically.
You can take too much iron and it is found in most prenatal vitamins and in some birth control pills.
