Hello I'm a 32 year old athletic male My wife 29

Patient

Q: Hello

I'm a 32 year old athletic male
My wife 29 and I are going to start a family this year
My question is is it safe for me to continue to use over the counter sports supplements (protein amino acids creatine and multi vitamins ) while we are trying to get pregnant?
Thanks

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com
I understand your concern.

Yes, you can continue taking protein supplements and it does not affect the fertility or pregnancy in anyway. It is just a way to increase or build your muscle mass. So you can go ahead and continue using them.

Hope this was helpful,
Regards.
