There is certainly no harm in continueing with the vitamins, but the critical time when they have the most effect is past.

You should phone in and ask if you must go in and see the gynae before your appointment about the discharge. It is normal to have a white discharge during pregnancy, anything else should be reported.

You are meant to take your pregnancy multi vitamin through the entire time you are pregnant and for at least 6 months afterwards or until you stop breastfeeding (if its longer than 6 months).

Did you ask your gynae why you have apparently had enough vitamins?
