I went to dr she told me to stop ginette 35 & to have metformin 850, folvite (folic acid) & normoz. In scan on 12th day to chk ovula & called 16th day chk rupture??

Meds: 1: Stopping Ginette is OK and probably wise.

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?

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 am taking folic acid during pregnancy. Currently 4 months pregnant. Please confirm if I need to take any other medication. Thanks?

Not usually: Unless your OB has done blood work and advised other medications (such as thyroid, iron, etc.), then no, Folic Acid is really the only thing you should make sure you are taking. It would be fine to add a prenatal vitamin/multivitamin along with it. Just as long as you are getting 1 mg of Folic Acid a day, you should be fine. ...Read more
