When is Pregnacare Conception recommended?
Pregnacare Conception should be used as soon as you start trying for a baby. To help build the body’s nutritional stores it can even be for 3-6 months before you start to try for a baby. Once you have confirmed you are pregnant, you can continue to use up any remaining Pregnacare Conception tablets, before moving on to Pregnacare or Pregnacare Plus with Omega-3, which are specially formulated for the remainder of your pregnancy and during breastfeeding. Pregnacare Conception contains the right amount of folic acid and other nutrients for the early weeks of pregnancy too, as your baby requires these nutrients for foetal development before you are even aware you are pregnant.
What do I need to know before starting to use Pregnacare Conception?
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.
Can Pregnacare Conception be used alongside medicines?
As a general rule, Pregnacare Conception can be taken alongside medications because it contains only moderate levels of vitamins and minerals. However, if you are already taking prescribed supplements or medications or have an underlying condition, seek advice from your doctor or health professional first
How many tablets does one pack of Pregnacare Conception contain?
Pregnacare Conception contains 30 tablets per pack and it is recommended to take one per day.
How and when should Pregnacare Conception be used?
One tablet per day is recommended with or immediately after your main meal, with a full glass of 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

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.
Is there anything my partner can take too?
Yes. Wellman tablets can help safeguard the nutritional requirements of your partner and provide him with nutrients needed to help maintain reproductive health.

RDA levels are calculated to help prevent the most basic vitamin and mineral deficiency states. The levels contained in Pregnacare Conception are specific to supporting your chances of conception. This is why some levels of nutrients in Pregnacare Conception are higher than the RDA (e.g. folic acid, the recommended level is 200% RDA). Importantly, all levels are safe for before and during pregnancy and well within upper safety guidelines for daily self-supplementation.
Does Pregnacare Conception contain Vitamin A (retinol), because excess is not advised during pregnancy?
No. Pregnacare® Conception has been carefully formulated to contain betacarotene instead of vitamin A.
What happens if I forget to take my Pregnacare Conception and miss a day?
A regular intake is recommended, but don’t worry, this will not have done any harm. Simply take Pregnacare Conception on the next day when you remember, and take as directed. You should not take more than the recommended amount on subsequent days to make up for any day(s) that you have missed. Whilst it is important to take a supplement every day, if you miss one day this is fine because the beneficial effects of the vitamins and minerals build over time.
Can Pregnacare Conception be taken whilst using the contraceptive pill?
Yes. Pregnacare Conception has been especially developed for women to help build up the body’s reserves of the key nutrients needed for a healthy conception, to ensure you have the best possible nutritional support for this important time. It is therefore recommended 3-6 months before you start trying to conceive i.e while still using the contraceptive pill or other forms of contraception. Pregnacare Conception includes no drugs or hormones, and is safe to be taken alongside the contraceptive pill.
