    you will need to check with your cd hun because normally you shouldn't take vits but it depends how much folic acid is in the packs. you do know with evening primrose you can only take it up to ovulation.

    Hello me to.... Ttc I mean n I'm gonna restart next week want to lose my last 2 or 3 stone after losing 7 on cd!

    I don't know the 100% correct answer but I'm gonna take folic acid b6 and I'm just about to start with the EPO I'm not going to take a multivitamin though ad we are supposed to get all our needs me with the packs so the way I look at it is we would be having more than 100% of EVERY vitamin n that can't be a good thing!

    I do also take vitamin c but for different reasons but coincidentally it helps ur body to absorb b6 hope my ramblings have helped..... Probably not but let me know what u discover as I'm not really doing things the conventional way n need all the help I can get
