Pregnacare Original FAQ

Why has Pregnacare Conception Max been developed?

Pregnacare Conception Max nutritional supplements 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 Max includes L-Methylfolate, a more advanced, bioavailable form of folic acid, plus a high purity Omega-3 capsule. It includes zinc which is scientifically proven to contribute to normal fertility and reproduction.

When is Pregnacare Conception Max recommended?

Pregnacare Conception Max 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 1-3 months before you start to try for a baby.

Will I experience changes in my monthly cycle?

Did you know that some women can experience irregular cycles when coming off the contraceptive pill, which can last up to six months? The menstrual cycle can also be disturbed by weight loss, weight gain, excessive amount of exercise, physical or emotional upset. More Information

Pregnacare Conception Max is a nutrient based, scientifically researched formula without any drugs or hormones. It contains no ingredients known to cause irregularity in the monthly cycle.

If you experience a delay or change in your monthly cycle, this may not necessarily mean you are pregnant, and it is advised to take a pregnancy test and speak to your doctor or health professional.

Have any scientific reviews been conducted on Pregnacare and the monthly cycle?

A scientific review was carried out by senior obstetrician Prof Mark Brincat FRCOG, FRCPI, an expert in this area, to assess whether the regular use of Pregnacare Conception may be attributed to irregularities in the menstrual cycle. Vitabiotics played no role in the literature review process, in the assessment or writing of the expert report. The conclusion of this report (25 February 2019) states:

There is no evidence that the various components in Pregnacare Conception should cause an irregularity in cycle in normal cycling women. Its various components have been shown to be safe and of benefit.

Therefore, any irregularity in cycle whilst someone is on Pregnacare Conception is likely to be casual, a chance finding and likely to highlight some other pre-existing condition. This warrants referral to a doctor and full investigation.

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

2The effect of preconceptional multivitamin supplementation on the menstrual cycle. Randomized Controlled Trial. Dudas I. Rockenbauer M. Czeizel AE. Archives of Gynecology & Obstetrics. 256(3):115-23, 1995.

What should I do if I notice a change or delay in my monthly cycle?

The menstrual cycle can change over time and can be affected by other factors including weight loss, weight gain, excessive amounts of exercise, and physical or emotional upset. Research has shown that coming off the contraceptive pill can also cause irregularities for several months. A delay in the cycle could also be related to other underlying issues.

If you experience a delay or change in your monthly cycle, this may not necessarily mean you are pregnant and it is advised to take a pregnancy test and speak to your doctor or health professional for more advice and investigation.

Can Pregnacare Conception Max be used alongside medicines?

As a general rule, Pregnacare Conception Max 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/capsules does one pack of Pregnacare Conception Max contain?

Pregnacare Conception Max contains 56 advanced micronutrient tablets and 28 Omega-3 capsules per pack, take two tablets and one capsule each per day.

Is Pregnacare Conception Max suitable for vegetarians?

No, as Pregnacare Conception Max includes Omega-3 from fish oil and this is in a gelatine capsule, it is not suitable for vegetarians. The original Pregnacare Conception product however is vegetarian friendly, as it contains no fish oil or gelatin.

Need help swallowing a tablet or capsule?

Difficulty in swallowing tablets and capsules is quite a common experience. Vitabiotics have researched this extensively and recommend after chewing some food (e.g. banana), just before you swallow, pop the tablet into your mouth and swallow it together with the chewed food, followed by some liquid. The throat opens up wider to swallow the chewed food and so the tablet should go down with greater ease. Alternatively, the tablets may be swallowed with thicker liquids such as yoghurts or smoothies.

What are the active nutrients?

Zinc, Vitamin D, Vitamin B12, Vitamin C, Selenium, Iodine, Magnesium, L-Methylfolate, Coenzyme Q10, Inositol, Omega-3 DHA.

How and when should Pregnacare Conception Max be used?

Two tablets, plus one Omega-3 capsule 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 Max should only be taken on a full stomach.

Always ensure that Pregnacare Conception Max is taken with plenty of liquid to wash down the tablet/capsule. We do not recommend chewing the tablets or capsules because they have not been formulated as chewable preparations. Chewable tablets and capsules usually include flavourings, sweeteners and/or added ingredients to help break the tablet up in the mouth.

Are there any undesired effects whilst taking Pregnacare Conception Max?

Pregnacare Conception Max has no known side-effects when taken as directed. Do not exceed the recommended tablet intake. In case of overdose, seek medical advice immediately.

How to subscribe to Pregnacare Conception Max?

Each Pregnacare Conception Max pack contains 28 days supply (1 month). We recommend subscribing to 1 pack every 1 month.
