    I've got my husband taking the folic acid as well as me because my MIL read somewhere that it can help your chances of getting pregnant.

    no, from what i've read i think it's a general multi vitamin, no specifically for TTC!

    Whilst TTC my OH took zinc and boots own multivitamin, he also ate a good diet...he also ate alot of tomato soup and tomato pasta foods as he read tomato was good for sperm.
