Hi Anon

Thanks for this question and welcome to EmpowHER!

If you are planning to get pregnant then starting a prenatal supplement now is a good idea. This will ensure your body has the folic acid it needs for a healthy pregnancy as well as other nutrients. 

I recently answered a question about preparing for pregnancy and I think my answer will help you too!
