Prenatal pills

How soon do you need to start taking your pills? Can I buy them from a Walgreens or something the ones my doctor told me to take it way to big

You should start them as soon as you can. Your Dr can give you a different pill. You can also get the gummies but they don't usually have iron in them.

But I'm only 7weeks and the pills are very large I really don't like them

You're supposed to start three months before trying to get pregnant.  Talk to your doctor if you don't like the ones he recommended.

Alright thank you

You should start as soon as you find out youre pregnant, and preferably earlier.  The folic acid helps stop some developmental problems.
