I have started taking it - you should at least start as soon as you are TTC or NTNP, but if you take it 2-3 months before trying if you fall pregnant straight away you should have given your levels a good boost before the pregnancy.

I'm still on prenatal vitamins to support breastfeeding. I think I will just keep taking them through the year until we TTC again in January.

I will probably start taking them in January as we are planning to start ntnp in April. However I may start taking them earlier if my doctor recommends stopping the pill when I go there next so I can get my body back to normality as neither myself nor my partner enjoy using barrier methods and will probably just take our chances!
