prenatal vitamins

Dear Gynae Doc

I''m trying to conceive and my gynaecologist has " prescribed"  Folic Acid Forte for me - saying I don''t need to take any multivitamins with it.

I used to take Vitaforce Ladyvite Adult every day before that and never struggled with PMS but since I have swopped the multivitamin for the Folic Acid I can literally kill someone the week before my period starts and I get extremely depressed (I''m already on anti depressants) - so I''m thinking the two has to be linked? (This has been the same for the past 3 months)

My question is can I take a multivitamin with the Folic Acid? If so, can I continue taking both when I do fall pregnant?

Thanks in advance

You can continue with the multivitamin. If i contains enough folic acid it may not be necessary to take the Folic acid forte as well.

On tuesday i visited my gynae and I am also trying to conceive - she has also put me on folic acid forte and on staminogro which my hubby must take as well and on fertomed - said that it will boost the sperm count - you also need to go for a blood test friend! - go for thyroid and check your sugar levels - you may not be diabetic but sometimes your insulin levels affects falling pregnant and also your weight - doc told me to lose some weight
