    Default Vitamins ?

    Would you suggest vitamins like blackmores conception prenatal for an egg donor? Or is that something us crazy IVF ladies do.

    And should I start taking them too even if they are not using my eggs?

    These are the thoughts that just came to my head.
    Yes I have found an altruistic egg donor!!

    My DP and I are going through reciprocal IVF and both my DP(egg donor) and I (recipient) have been taking prenatal vitamins for months. DP has stopped taking them after a successful EC and I will continue taking them until and throughout pregnancy.

    Yep, if your donor is happy to take them I'd ask her to take a good pregnancy multivitamin with folate. Buy a bottle of Elevit or similar so she's not out of pocket for it.

    You should definitely be taking a good pregnancy multivitamin too. It's essential to make sure you have enough folate, iron and vitamins/minerals to carry a pregnancy
