Default prenatals and hormone levels

Does anyone else notice major changes in hormone levels while on prenatals? I've been on them since the begining of May and every month I start thinking I'm pg because My boobs are constantly changing during the whole cycle..they seem more swollen and tight towards the end. I also seem to be having a ton of hormonal headaches like I do when pmsing. Tylenol just doesn't seem to touch them and I don't really want to take anythign else since we are TTC. Could the prenatals just have that much affect on my body?

I haven't noticed any big changes to my body from the prenatals...but I am sure everyone reacts to them differently.

I haven't noticed any changes with Prenatals, but my periods are much heavier when I am on vitex and the evening primrose oil

Maybe it's not The prenatals then..i just don't knwo why else they seem to be fluctuating so much. My bras definitely fit different at the end of the month than they do in the begining.

When I was on prenatals this last time, I got really sick and got funky headaches from them constantly. I don't know if it was messing with my hormones at all, but I know that the headaches were caused by them. I decided to try a different brand, so switched over and immediately noticed a 100% difference in how I felt- no more sickness and no more headaches. So, you might see about getting a prescription for a different brand or even just a different OTC kind. Good luck.
