    I took them for the first time this month and got my BFP, and this was our first month of trying :) therefore I don't know whether they played any part, or whether we'd have been lucky anyway! I can't say I've experienced any side effects but I'm not sure what's due to pregnancy and what's due to those :lol: hope they work for you! x

    I used the seven seas ones. They contain iron which from personal experience I find makes me vomit unless I take them with food (usually had them straight after brekkie). This isn't pregnancy related as some people are just more sensitive to iron tablets. The few occassions in my life where I have taken then on an empty stomach, I have without fail felt intense nausea then vomitted within an hour of taking them. Always felt fine again afterwards.

    I have been taking seven seas for the last 6 months & had no issue with them, now I got a BFP on Tuesday I'm still going to take them up until 12 weeks

    True. But when you can't eat any vitamins are good vitamins. I have a really bad diet at the best of times I'm do fussy and am intolerant to sea food. So I feel I need all the help I can get!

    Exactly and the midwives wouldn't suggest the vitamins if they weren't any good. Even my fertility consultant (who is top at the clinic and a well known consultant) said to take a pre-conception multi-vit xx

    There is also a study that says if you consume 0.7mg (1× folic acid plus lots of folic acid rich foods like marmite) the day before conception it reduces miscarriage risk by upto 20% hence why lots of recurrent misscarriers are prescribed high dose 5mg folic acid.
    So I would 100% recommend pretty pregnancy vitamins x x good luck

    I don't know about these vitamins, but I simply took a vitamin B complex, which included Folic acid. I took them for about a month before our first try and got a BFP. I continued with it until I got the positive and then swapped over to Pregnacare.
