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?

Maybe: That is a high dose of folic acid. I'm assuming that a doctor recommended that dose? 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.

My TSH is > 100 and WBC is 9300 and currently on eltroxin 100mcg can I take folvite (folic acid) 5 mg after 7 hrs. Will folic increase my WBC affect my hypothyroid?

My TSH is > 100 and WBC is 9300 and currently on eltroxin 100mcg can I take folvite (folic acid) 5 mg after 7 hrs. Will folic increase my WBC affect my hypothyroid?

Yes, probably no: Yes, no problem taking folvite, (folic acid) though I don't know if it will affect your WBC or thyroid. Your WBC is normal, though is a bit on the higher side which may indicate an acute infection- but it can change a great deal day to day. Eltroxin may not be enough- many people need liothyronine as well. Make sure your free T3 gets into the upper half of the normal range. You may benefit from taking iodine. ...Read more

Oligomenorrhea: Pcos is a hard disease to deal with and you need to be in close contact with a doctor who will monitor your weight, metabolic health, and discuss the regularity of your periods. You need to have regular periods in order to get pregnant naturally and I wouldn't give up on your chances unless you've been trying for a full year, meaning timed, unprotected sex. ...Read more

Currently on normoz, metformin 850 & folvite (folic acid). missed periods its 9 days date I had sex during ovulation. I don't have any preg symp, can I get pregnant?

Hard to tell: If a woman ovulates, and has no other gynecologic or fertility problems, then she "can" get pregnant. But, it can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred). ...Read more

I want concieved tell me what can I do. M trying last 7 month. And m taking folic acid tablet. Suggest me plzH?

Be patient: It takes an average of 6-7months to conceive and it is not considered a problem unless you go a year without conceiving. Continue folic acid and have intercourse around the time of ovulation. A multivitamin and about 5000 iu of Vit D3/day may help.

My folate (folic acid) level was 10, 2 nmol/l (ref: 15, 9-71, 10). I am taking now folate pill. After how long would it be good to have it rechecked? Thx

My folate (folic acid) level was 10, 2 nmol/l (ref: 15, 9-71, 10). I am taking now folate pill. After how long would it be good to have it rechecked? Thx

Pretty soon: If you're talking about serum folate you can recheck in just a week as it reflects recent intake quite well. Red blood cell folate shows the body's stores better, so you might want to wait a month or so to test that. Those will low folate are often among the many who can't readily convert folic acid to folate so it's best to supplement with the L-5-MTHF form.
