just a quick question… I am planning on stoppnig bc in in a few months- should I start prenatal vitamins now or wait until after I’ve stopped? We want to ttc right after the wedding!
Thanks in advance for your advice 🙂

@StarsHope: It’s never tooo early to supplement your diet with extra vitamins and folic acid.

There’s nothing specific about prenatal vitamins that doesn’t make them appropriate as a regular, day to day vitamin. My doctor actually recommends that all sexually active women of child bearing age take a prenatal as their regular multivitamin, just in case. A little extra folic acid never hurt anybody.

The reccommended time is at least 3 months before ttc, so starting now would be good. The vitamens can take some time to build up to optimal levels, especially the folic acid. I began taking them last week, we’re hoping for a honeymoon baby:)
