You keep taking prenatals throughout TTC, pregnancy, and breast feeding.

Yes, you continue to take them.

ampapa:  It depends on which ones you are taking (I actually saw one brand that said “do not use if you are pregnant”… well that defeats the purpose) and what the levels of folic acid/iron/and other vitamins are. I would bring your pill to the doctor for him/her to confirm it is the right choice.

One thing to keep in mind, they may prescribe one that is almost identical. That means insurance will cover it (but if you have a 500 pill pack already, you may not need the prescription).

Yes, they’re usually prenatal, pregnancy and postpartum all in one. Seems like “prenatal” is usually the biggest word on there though!

Regarding PP’s comment that insurance will cover prescribed prenatals, that’s not always true. It depends on your plan. My doctor prescribed mine and I had to pay for them out of pocket. It was generic and cost me $30 for a three-month supply, but OTC might be cheaper.

ampapa:  Prenatal refers to the time when you are pregnant.  Ie. before birth.
