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

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.

Yes but low risk: Acretta can develop even in women who have never had a c/section. Fortunately this is rare. The risk is much higher if the placenta is covering the prior c/section scar. With the placenta 4cm from the scar, your risk is very low (but not zero). Best wishes! ...Read more

What kind of incision for delivery of singleton in transverse lie with anterior placenta previa? Will low transverse cut risk hemorrhage/uterine tear?

Hyst'omy MANDATED: hello Annie-_777 I am not an OB GYN but I have had a lot of experience which tells me that a lower abdominal incision (Pfannen-Stiel) is a better incision in almost all situations. This situation of a transverse lie and an anterior placenta praevia is a very hazardous situation because you need the baby out and the cord clamped within seconds of opening the uterus so choose a very skilled surgeon. ...Read more
