A 22-year-old female asked:

I would like to know when is it necessary to see a gynae as i am 9 weeks pregnant, and when do you need to take pregnancy vitamins? besides folic acid, i've been to a dr and he advised when i'm 10 weeks i should come back.

Now: So you state that told you that they come backat 10 weeks so must have already seen one and they told you to come back at 10 weeks.so go back at 10 weeks.That is fine.The vitamins should ideally be started before conception usually recommended 3 months prior especially the folic acid.
