PREGNACARE CONCEPTION | 30 Tablets
Prenatal formula for healthy conception when trying for a baby
Vitabiotics® Pregnacare Conception nutritional tablets are specially formulated to help support a healthy conception for women who are trying for a baby. The formula has been developed on the basis of worldwide studies showing that certain nutrients can play an important role in helping to build nutritional stores ready for pregnancy and support good reproductive health. Pregnacare Conception provides a carefully balanced comprehensive formulation of micronutrients including Inositol, Coenzyme Q10, N-acetyl Cysteine and Selenium. The formula also includes vitamin B12 and D plus folic acid at 400mcg, the exact recommended level by the Department of Health.
As well as hundreds of positive emails and reports over the years, Pregnacare Conception has also been the subject of a randomised controlled clinical trial published in 2011 in Reproductive BioMedicine.1 This showed that women with difficulties conceiving had significantly higher pregnancy rates when taking Pregnacare Conception compared with those taking folic acid alone. This trial also showed that women taking Pregnacare Conception achieved pregnancy in significantly fewer attempts compared with women on folic acid alone. No negative effects on the monthly cycle were found. In fact, another study has shown that the female cycle was more regular during multivitamin supplementation.2

Pregnacare Conception FAQ:
Q: What do I need to know before starting to use Pregnacare Conception?
A: Pregnacare Conception has been carefully developed by a team of experts including highly qualified pharmacists and nutritional consultants, and is based upon scientific research evidence, as a nutritional safeguard for women who are trying for a baby. Pregnacare Conception replaces your usual daily multivitamin.
Q: Some women reported a change in their monthly cycle when using Pregnacare Conception. Should I be concerned?
A: Pregnacare Conception contains only moderate levels of essential vitamins and minerals without any drugs or hormones. Our comprehensive global literature searches have shown that it does not contain any nutrient that is known to cause irregularities or changes in the monthly cycle.
Hundreds of thousands of women in the UK will experience irregularities or delays with their cycle each year; out of these, the vast majority will never have used Pregnacare Conception, but of course a minority (though still a significant number) will be using it. Because of the large sample of users, for some women the timing of their problem may coincide with the start of using Pregnacare Conception.
Please note this should not be regarded as a substitute to the professional medical advice provided by your doctor or other healthcare professionals and we recommend you consult your doctor for specific guidance.
Q: How and when should Pregnacare Conception be used?
A: One tablet per day is recommended with or immediately after your main meal, with water or a cold drink. Taking the tablet with a large meal maximises the absorption of the nutrients, and can reduce nausea which is sometimes experienced if multivitamins are taken on an empty stomach. Pregnacare Conception should only be taken on a full stomach. Always ensure that Pregnacare Conception is taken with plenty of liquid to wash down the tablet. We do not recommend chewing the tablets because they have not been formulated as chewable preparations. Chewable tablets usually include flavourings, sweeteners and/or added ingredients to help break the tablet up in the mouth. Pregnacare Conception tablets are suitable for vegetarians.
Q: Are there any undesired effects whilst taking Pregnacare Conception?
A:Pregnacare Conception has no known side-effects when taken as directed. Do not exceed the recommended tablet intake. In case of overdose, seek medical advice immediately.
Q: Is there anything my partner should take too?
A: Yes. Wellman Conception has been specifically designed to support the nutritional requirements of men who are trying to conceive. The special formula has been developed on the basis of worldwide studies showing that certain nutrients can play an important role in supporting good reproductive health. Wellman Conception provides a carefully balanced comprehensive formulation of micronutrients to help maintain reproductive health in men, including zinc, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12.
