5 weeks pregnant I am taking folvite (folic acid) 5 mg before and after I got pregnant. Is this dose too much? If yes should I reduce? And will that harm my baby?

5 weeks pregnant I am taking folvite (folic acid) 5 mg before and after I got pregnant. Is this dose too much? If yes should I reduce? And will that harm my baby?

There are definitely times when women should take higher doses of folic acid, such as history of neural tube defect, history of seizures, on anti-seizure medication, multiple gestation. I would speak with your doc to understand why such a high dose. Or, if you're worried, you can drop to 1mg a day. ...Read more

Conception: Do you really need ginette and fovite?

What you do need to do is make an appointment to see an obstetrician.
