A 18-year-old female asked:

Can taking large amounts of vitamin C induce a miscarriage at 6 weeks?

Possibly: Research is limited but many women report that high doses of vitamin C (500 mg an hour) for several days taken in early pregnancy induces miscarriage. Thus, if one wants to avoid miscarriage then avoid high doses of C in early pregnancy. If one wishes to induce miscarriage it is safe to try but probably works less than 50% of the time.
