@Mrs2b2014:  Sure, you can take them at the same time. It’s really just a multi-vitamin with extra folic acid. In the US you can just buy them at the store. They are next to the other multi-vitamins. I eat a healthy diet so I mostly just took folic acid in the months prior to us TTC.

Yup, my gyno recommended that I start taking them a year or two ago (she knew this was several years before TTC).  I was still on BCP until a month ago.  You can buy them at any pharmacy!

@Mrs2b2014:  You can definitely start taking prenatals now! A little unsolicited advice though, A LOT of women take awhile to regulate their cycles after getting off of birth control. I’ve just gotten off birth control and I didn’t ovulate this first cycle. I would highly suggest you not getting on BC if it’s just going to be for a really short time. Or just be prepared that it may take you several months before your cycles regulate.

of course you can take them at the same time.  pre-natals are just a daily vitamin with the nutrients built for a woman who is pregnant or wants to be pregnant.

@Mrs2b2014:  I definitely understand that! It’s nice not having to worry about it during your wedding. I just wanted to make sure you were prepared in case it does take your body a little while to recover!
