The effect of preconceptional multivitamin supplementation on fertility

Int J Vitam Nutr Res. 1996;66(1):55-8.


A significantly higher rate of conceptions occurred after preconceptional multivitamin supplementation in comparison with a placebo-like trace element supplementation in the Hungarian randomised, double-blind, controlled trial. This difference was explained by 5% shorter time in the achievement of conception.
