Trying to conceive. Suffered miscarriage before. Taking vitamins daily. Medicines to be taken?

My fiancee and I are in the process of trying to conceive again after a year. I suffered a miscarriage last year. I have cut down to one cup of coffee a day and taking vitamins daily, but I believe some of the vitamins that I m taking (mostly to try to increase hair growth) maybe too much if I m trying to conceive and if possible to continue to stay on my vitamins during the time of pregnancy if I do conceive. I m taking 5000mcg of Biotin , 5000mcg of B-12, Super B-Complex, Prenatal Vitamins , Veggie Basic tablets, Zinc, and my thyroid meds. Is this way too much?

Thank you for your query.
Firstly, the cause of the previous miscarriage should be thoroughly investigated.
It could be because of genetic causes, infections, hormone imbalance, uterine abnormalities or autoimmune causes.
Without evaluating the cause, rushing into another pregnancy could cause further miscarriages.
Also, fertility is more important than other issues right now.
Yes, you are taking way too many supplements.
Please stick to thyroid medications and folic acid.
Take care.
