    Hi girls,

    Last month I started taking lots of vitamins and this cycle has been a very strange one. Have any of you experienced cycle changes/pregnancy symptoms when you started taking supplements?

    Also, am I taking the right things? I can't take vitamin B12 so can't take the usual pregnacare ones. This is what I've been taking daily-

    Seven seas fish oils with 260mg of starflower oil and EPO
    Another 500mg of numark EPO
    Redoxon daily defence- 1000mg vitamin C and 10mg zinc
    Sainsburys folic acid 800mg

    Xx

    the lowest does you can take of folic acid for ttc is 400mg you do not need to take 800mg as this could have a affect of taking to much and the fish oils with starflower oil and epo is totaly fine but only take up to ovulation as it can cause uterus contractions witch obvs can cause miscarrige hope this helped x.

    Great thanks, but there's so much conflicting information out there. Some people say 1000mg of folic acid but my tablets are 400 so I gad decided to take 2. I'll just take 1 daily from now on. Some articles say fish oils are essential, but others say they can be dangerous so it's hard to know what to think! That's because you can store vitamin a. I guess that means that if I only take them for 2 weeks a month, like you said, I can never end up storing too much! Thanks, it's so confusing!
