I’m taking a no-name prenatal. I’m severely deficient in a lot of vitamins/minerals (iron, B12, D, etc.) AND contemplating pregnancy in the next couple months. I don’t have much advice if you’re just looking for a regular multivitamin, but if you have multiple deficiences like me, maybe ask your doctor if a prenatal is a good short-term solution since they have higher doses of the most common vitamin/minerals?

Although I am not even close to trying to concieve, I take RainbowLight prenatals. I can’t use the gummies, there’s something in them that makes me break out (probably a sugar or dye). The RainbowLight ones are slightly smaller than a Centrum but I find that I don’t taste it for hours after like I did other horrible vitamins. Plus, they’re plant based with less additives I guess.

MuseForever:  Spring Valley Prenatal, Vitamin A, Milk Thistle and Green Tea supplements. That combo works for me. It has helped calm the PCOS symtpoms and my cystic acne is all gone! Even my FI and family can’t get over how great my skins looks with the vitamins. I like the Spring Valley line. I think it’s generally very good, or at least for me.

I take biotin and a prenatal vitamin everyday to help give me my daily vitamin intake as well as to help my hair, skin and nails 🙂 so far I see a great difference in my hair and nails and the way I feel. when I don’t take my vitamins I feel like I have less energy and feel fatigued. Hope this helps! 🙂

I take sam-e (for depression) and I also take B-12 (vegetarian).

My b12 is gummy and yes, it has sugar in it. I dont mind though because I don’t have time for injections and the sublingual pills, papers, and drops give me a horrible irritation on my tongue!

i used to take a multi with iron (I should now) but I have a hard time finding one that doesnt make me nausous.

I take Centrum for women and I find them huge, and I need to be full when I take one or I feel super nauseous. 

I’m just waiting it out until I finish the bottle and I’ll probably look into a gummy, because I can’t stand the large pills!

MuseForever:  Granted I am pregnant- but you can take prenatals even when you’re not!

I take Rainbow Light.  No, they don’t smell amazing when you open the jar, but there’s not after taste. I take the one where you take 6/day– they are a whole food vitamin which is better thana vitamin with a bunch of fillers.

When I was having tummy problems in early pregnancy, I opted for Gummy Vites gummy vitamin prenatals– the smell of Rainbow Light made me want to vomit (only because of MS though).

I’m taking a prenatal vitamin (not trying to get pregnant, doctor recommended for iron) & magnesium.  I’m also going to try taking biotin.

MuseForever:  I take One a Day women petites. You take 2 small pills instead of 1 giant one and it is the only one I have taken so far that doesnt make me nauseous.
