Does anyone know if the Seven Seas Trying for a Baby tablet is ok to take while breastfeeding? Still feeding DC1 but want to try for DC2 soon! TIA smile

Not sure about that but they made my periods horrendous and when I was ttc (due in 2 weeks) they completely messed with my cycles. I remember asking on here at the time if anyone else had the same experience and it was quite common. I've had the same cycles for years...28 days, light, 3 day bleed etc When I started these they were lasting a week with horrifically heavy bleeds. I stopped them and was pregnant the next month.

This is interesting, as my cycles have become really long! Like 35/40 days and I have been taking seven seas.... I wonder if I should just switch to folic acid and a Vit D

That's what I ended up doing, no idea if there was any link but my cycles returned to normal. I stopped taking them in December/January and had a chemical that month. Pregnant the next.

I should add, only started taking them in October and felt the effects within weeks.

@october18 interesting!!! I'm glad I found this post! I'm going to stop taking them for a while and just take vit d and folic acid!! See what happens!! X

My cycles vary every month from 30-40 days and i ended up having a randum 61 day cycle was even at the drs for it started taking seven seas and got my period 5 days later and the cycle after that was 31 days im hoping this month will be the same or il get my BFP !!

This completely messed up my cycles, I saw the reviews and ignored thinking it wouldn't happen to me as I have been so regular since I started puberty but it completely ruined my cycles. I went from 28 days to 37!

I'm just about to start the pregnicare one - does this also mess with the cycle does anyone know? I really hope not! I got it because I thought it helped 😬

No experience with seven seas but the one month I took a multi vit instead of my separate folic acid and vit d, I had a longer cycle, 34 days instead of 29.

I’ve since stopped and returned to just folic acid and vit d. I’ve read lots about multi vits doing the same thing so I won’t be using them again.

@AMS19 I’ve read lots of posts about ladies saying the same about pregnacare too. Seems to be most of the multi vitamin tablets do the same!

@Moominmiss oh dear! Maybe I'll just take them now before I start actively trying in November and hope i don't screw anything too much. I've just come off the pill so in all honestly don't have much hope for decent cycles for a while yet anyway

They gave me awful headaches, every day!

The seven seas ones made my cycles
Really long and really difficult to track so I stopped taking them. Switched to just taking folic acid and vit D instead.

I stopped taking seven seas after reading the info on here, and I have just had a flashing smiley on clear blue advanced that's ten days ago earlier then last two cycles! Could be coincidence but I have heard a lot of stories about per natals lengthening cycles.... now I am just taking folic acid, a D and omega 3 x
