Hi there, I am a cancer survivor, and while I know this is probably really trivial, I really want my hair to grow longer! and it's taking forever... Somebody was telling me that they take prenatal vitamins and their hair has never been better; I am in no way trying to get pregnant! I'm on birth control, and sexually active. Would taking prenatal vitamins make me more susceptible to getting pregnant? I would love to know your thoughts/any advice you may have would be greatly appreciated!!! Many thanks!

Prenatal vitamins have nothing to do with fertility. They're just multivitamin and mineral supplements designed for the specific needs of someone who is pregnant. They contain iron, for example, because pregnant people often experience anemia.
