A good prenatal vitamin will have just the right amount of folic acid, in addition to other vitamins and minerals, like iron and anti-oxidants. A prenatal is your best bet in preparing to conceive.

No, not at the time. Back in november I had to take provera to get my period because I had just come off the pill in september. My period is pretty regular now. It may be late by a couple of days every now and then... My husband is wanting to get some ovulex and i'm all for it. I really think it might help. It can't hurt!

I've been on ovulex for a week now too! Not quite sure what it's doing but I definately feel different? I must investigate though: should I be taking folic acid too?
Good luck everybody. I know how important this is to you all. I've been trying for my baby number 2 for a year and a half now. Xxxxx

Lol cogoli, I know what you mean. Still, it's nice to know that other people out there have almost the same questions as you. I know what you mean about answering questions lol. I posted quite a lot yesterday lol.

I'll get into town and pick up some folic acid then.

Hope all you girls are well today? Have a great day xxxxx
