You can start tablet folic acid 5mg once a day after lunch daily prenatally. Before achieving pregnancy try to achieve good health i.e your hemoglobin level should be around 12mg, try to maintain your weight if you are obese,take healthy and nutritional food etc.

I have been taking the Depo-Shot since July of 2014, and my husband and I want to start a family. The research I ve gotten about the shot is that it can take up to 4-10 months after stopping to get pregnant. We want to get pregnant as soon as possible, so will taking prenatal vitamins help our chances of get pregnant sooner?

Hello sir/mam After how many months of pregnancy it is advisable to take iron,folic acid and calcium tablets and names of those tablets? Since it is already 3months passed in pregnancy, we went to our Dr. for a visit as a routine check up but he was absent and we sent the tvs ultrasound report over his whatsapp and he wrote us some medicines 1)gestofits sr 300 2)eco sprine 75 3)hucog 5k injection 4)doxinate plus 5)omez 40 But we cannot see any tablet related to iron, folic acid and calcium as above prescribed medicines. Please suggest what should we do now whether we should continue these medicines as prescribed by Dr. or do we need to visit any other doctor.

I m trying to get pregnant, but nothing is working. My mother has a heart shaped uterus , so I m obviously fairly lucky to be alive and well. However, I m not entirely sure if I have the same problem, considering not very many women have it. I was told to take prenatal vitamins to help me conceive. Does that really work?

I am 9 week pregnant and for the past 3 week I am been having shortness of breath and tightening of the chest. I have been to the emergeny room and they found nothing wrong. I was told to follow up with my next prenatal visit or go back it the emercency room. However, I am assessing myself to see all the possible triggers, and I thought about the prenatal tablet that I have been taking. I just researched it and found out that shortness of breath and chest thightening is on of the sympthom. It is prenatal vitamins with DHA by Nature's Made. But my concern is would this have affected my baby. I am very worried.

Anxiously awaiting your resnonse.
