Can a 17 year old take prenatal vitamins if not pregnant but to help with hair growth?

Can a 17 year old take prenatal vitamins if not pregnant but to help with hair growth?

It is safe: It is safe for a non-pregnant woman of child bearing age to take a pre-natal vitamin. I'm not so sure it is going to help a whole lot with your hair growth. Hair growth depends on many factors, just one of them being adequate vitamin intake. So i wouldn't do this thinking it's the magic bullet to long hair. ...Read more

Not likely: If your periods started more than a year ago and you have gone through puberty you are unlikely to grow taller. Swimming will not increase height regardless of chronological age or maturity of bone age. ...Read more

What vitamins will help my hair grow long and how much a day should I take?

Although there is no proof that vitamin supplements will help hair growth in people with a normal diet, the most commonly used vitamins for hair growth are the B-Vitamins, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E. http://www.ehow.com/how_4784460_increase-hair-growth-vitamins.html#ixzz3458igsoO ...Read more

Is it ok for a 19 year old girl weighing 180lbs to take some pills to help them lose weight? Does it affect your fertility?

Is it ok for a 19 year old girl weighing 180lbs to take some pills to help them lose weight? Does it affect your fertility?

PIlls to lose weight: No. It is not okay. Pills are dangerous. They do not lead to true and lasting weight loss. They are actually a crime against health, but they make their makers a lot of money. Weight loss is about changing your life. It is about limiting calories...Eating less sugars and more protein. It is about moving and being active with a type of exercise that burns the right calories...Those pesty sugars. ...Read more

I'm trying to grow my hair out and people tell me that taking pre-natal vitamins helps it grow really fast. Is it okay to take when not pregnant?

Totally OK: It's best to take pre-natal vits BEFORE one becomes pregnant, as they're most important the first 2 weeks of pregnancy and many women don't know they're pregnant the first 2 weeks. Thus ALL women of childbearing age who are sexually active should take pre-natals preventively. Pre-natals are a multivit. with a limited amount of Vit A (too much A bad if pregnant). I advise multivits for everybody. ...Read more

What am I doing tnow as a teen that can stunt my growth and how can I avoid they factor that stunt my growth and when will I as a teen guy stop growin?

Positives are easier: The factors that support the best possible growth are good health, proper nutrition and exercise and proper sleep.If you are not doing these, it hurts. Males generally stop growing about 17, when there growth centers close.An x-ray of your wrist/hand can be analysed for chance of more growth.If the growth centers are closed, you are done. ...Read more

I am 23years old girl i take medicines for pcod last 6 years and i want to know about is it good for my body to take medicines continous 6years and how it will effect my health?

A medicated life ??: Your question is a good one & one which challenges us to define necessary vs elective treatment. You wouldn't ask a diabetic to stop taking Insulin after they took it x years, their condition requires it for life. For someone with pcos, the life altering condition can create significant problems that are aided by medications, many of which have been used safely for decades.Discuss it with your doc. ...Read more

My husband wants to try adult nursing is that healthy? And how can I start lactating again?

My husband wants to try adult nursing is that healthy? And how can I start lactating again?

A little is ok: Breast milk is very nutritious, and excellent for babies, so will be of no harm to adults (in small amounts). Breast milk is too rich, so will give an adult too much animal fat (yes, we are animals) and many extra calories (not good for cholesterol levels and one's arteries). A woman may have a hard time re-starting lactation if she had stopped weeks or months ago. ...Read more
