Hi I am going to be 44 and all of a sudden my biological clock decided to start ticking. My doctor said that I should try it for 6 months before going in for tests.

I take a regular multi vitamin from Sam's Club - their brand and a calcium - also a store brand.

I have been taking the Spring Valley prenatal vitamins from WalMart. They are a multi with folic acid added. They make your nails and hair grow, which is a nice bonus! I also take a fish oil supplement. Good luck TTCing!

Hi, I am 44 right now, and take New Chapter organic multi-vitamins, plus extra folic acid (total of 5mg) Unless you are eating a ton of fresh veggies you should likely be on a multi of some sort. Some are more bioavailable than others. The doctor had put me on Preg Vit at one point, which is also a good one and splits the dose into am and pm since some vitamins inhibit the absorbency of others. Hope all goes really well for you, and hopefully you don't get to that 6 month mark! :-)
