Is glucosamine ok?

I'm looking into taking a glucosamine supplement but I want to make sure first that it won't interfere with trying to conceive or cause harm while pregnant. All I can find through internet searches is that it hasn't been studied so it can't be recommended. Any insight would be appreciated! Thanks!

Hi Heather!

This is really a discussion you should have with your OB/GYN.

Don't ever start, stop or change the dose of a medication or supplement (prescription or OTC) without checking in with a medical professional.

You can check here for information and reviews from patients on a variety of drugs, supplements, vitamins, etc. However, it's not a substitute for your doctor.
