Taking them before I became pregnant I believe actually helped in our conception. My husband and I tried for a whole year to conceive and my doctor told me to start taking the prenatal vitamins and within 2 months I got pregnant.
I have no plans to ever become pregnant as I am in my late 40's. I have a immune disease called RP. My doctor prescribed folic acid and prenatal vitamins. I would say there is no harm in taking these, however, do not take them in addition to any other dietary supplements you might be taking. Too much of a good thing can be bad.
Some doctors actually recommend this. There was a recent study that showed that women who took prenatal vitamins up to 3 months prior to conception reduced their chance of miscarriage by over 30%.
They certainly can't hurt. The most important one for you to take is folic acid, and apparently zinc is supposed to help men make healthy sperm, so you can both take them!
If you can afford them, of course you can. You should *not* however take them in addition to regular daily multi-vitamin pills. One or the other, *not* both. It *is* possible to overdose on some vitamins.
I loved the way I looked taking prenatal vitamins, can I at 49 take prenatal
My doctor prescribed me prenatal vitamins after my first miscarriage. She said I should take them during the interim until I try again, plus during the next pregnancy. So yes, you can.
Yes, my doctor just prescribed me some and I'm not pregnant at all I'm 49 years old soon to be 50 my only question about this is will it help my hair to grow faster?
