Hi Everyone,

 I'd like to conceive in Aug. or Sept. When should I start making dietary changes AND start taking supplements? I want to be sure that I've got enough time to for the changes to take effect but I don't want to waste a ton of money on supplements I didn't need to take. When should I start? Please help! Many thanks!

In general, they say you should start the diet and supps 6 weeks before TTC.
Most people won't fall pregnant the first month trying, and you don't want to be on the diet any longer than you have to.

Hope this helps!!
Good luck!! :)

Good advice but should you just take folic acid for a girl or or do you always take prenatals? I am stopping pill too when is it best to stop that 3 months before ttc?

Yes, just folic acid for ttc a girl...you don't want all the other vitamins and minerals contained in a prenatal.

And from what I understand it's 3 months after you stop the pill that you can start ttc, but I would suggest asking your doctor, just to be completely sure!

Good luck!! :)

Agreed!! Don't start the diet & supps too early. I have been on the diet for 5 months now, and am rather fed up, as is DH. It's so hard not to cheat! Good luck X

I spoke to the practice nurse today who said that i only need to stop the pill 9 days before ttc!!! She said that it takes most older mums like me (ouch) about a year on average to concieve so i have stopped pill now and taking folic acid as of today will start ttc in july so o have longer instead of winter

Ah..so no Prenatal vitamins? Just folic acid and other swaying supplements/minerals? Good to know. Thanks ladies!
