Choosing Product category for Pregnancy Products

 Hello Friends,

 

I'm trying to find a suitable category for Pregnancy supplement that increases fertility and chance of getting pregnant from here https://www.google.com/basepages/producttype/taxonomy-with-ids.en-US.txt

 

This is a nutrient supplement for women expecting to get pregnant. Not a Test.

What should be the best choice?

 

But there are no exact matches. There are 3 close ones;

1) Health & Beauty > Health Care > Medical Tests > Pregnancy Tests

2) Health & Beauty > Health Care > Biometric Monitors > Fertility Monitors and Ovulation Tests

3) Health & Beauty > Health Care > Fitness & Nutrition > Vitamins & Supplements

 

I found there are restrictions pregnancy products, but search campaign got approved for same products.  Hopefully shopping campaign will get approved too. Thanks!

the best likely choice is (3):
Health & Beauty > Health Care > Fitness & Nutrition > Vitamins & Supplements

note that shopping-ads have rather strict
policies related to health-related items.

the policies apply to all submitted data, physical items and
ingredients, and all website content, even if not submitted.

for example, any health-related claim or any claim related outcome,
or any claim that is in any way exaggerated, or any claim that is
in any way misleading, or any claim of an improbable result even
if this result is possible, or any claim that falls anywhere outside
the bounds of current scientific or medical consensus, are not allowed.

also, shopping-campaign policies are not identical to search-campaigns --
what is approved for one campaign many not be approved for the other.

also, seeing the type of product listed, within google's taxonomy categories,
does not necessarily mean that the item is allowed as a shopping-ad -- google
may not always update the list to reflect current policies, and some items may
only be sold with specific certification and approval by google.

importantly perhaps, shopping-ads may be re-reviewed by google, at any time.
