Iron content of Prenate GT (Oral)

Why does Prenate GT (Oral) contain 90mg of Iron per dose? This iron content is significantly higher than most other prenatal vitamins. Why is this? Does this create a risk for iron overload?

Hello, it's Laurie again. I just wanted to throw my 2 cents on this one with tgnhis I've learned on my own fertility journey. These are tgnhis my doctor has told me for optimum environment. Your mileage may vary on the advice, as always consult your own doctor.First, whatever prenatal you take should have at least 1000mg of folic acid. Some do, some don't. If yours doesn't, then research foods that are high in folic acid and eat them. Take your prenatals a minimum of 2-3 months prior to conceiving.DHA is actually a big deal. You can get supplements in gel form alone or as part of a vitamin. I don't remember if it is a bigger deal during pregnancy or during the first year. I just took it as soon as I found out I was pregnant with my daughter and for the first year both.Also, begin to eat foods high in calcium. If you are pregnant, your child will generally get everything it needs to survive even if it means sucking you dry of your own resources. It's fascinating how it works.I was told NOT to take ibuprofin or similar medicines while trying to get pregnant as it can interfere with the timing of your ovulation. The reason that is important is that your follicles need to grow to a certain size to be viable for implantation, and if you ovulate early they are obviously not going to be big enough. That was a rough one for me as I have chronic pain issues, but I did it. Some prenatals do make you sick. My sister (who has 9 kids), always took them with some food at night right before bed. She was nauseated taking them any other way. I did the same thing with the same results, and slept through whatever mild nausea feelings I might have had. In the daytime was a different story. I would definitely chart and do the whole basal temperature thing. There is a great book out there about fertility and charting, but I can not remember the name of it. The amount of information in that book will blow you away. The only thing I remember is the name fertility somewhere in the title and the cover of the book looked sort of like a romantic watercolor abstract figure of a woman. The other surprise for me was how long sperm can live (up to 5 days), yet how short the window is to get pregnant when you ovulate. For example, when I was ovulating, I had a window of 36 hours total, and the dr. would prescribe sex at specific times based on when I got the last shot. Male sperm are persistent, but slower. Female sperm are faster, but don't live as long. So, if you want a boy, have sex BEFORE you ovulate, but if you want a girl, have sex WHEN you ovulate. It's not 100%, and I'm not using technical terms, but that's what my sister-in-law told me her Doc told her, and she's a peds nurse also. (doesn't it sound silly, like the game of gossip?) Anyway, I'm just passing on some information. Use it for what it's worth and do your own research also. Good luck!
