Is it okay if I take prenatal vitamins if I'm not pregnant or breastfeeding anymore? I stopped breastfeeding recently but still have vitamins left.
Prenatal vitamins: It's good to continue with prenatal vitamins after the delivery and completion of breast feeding to make up for the loss of these elements during the pregnancy and breast feeding. In spite of the name prenatal vitamins they can be used after the pregnancy and breast feelings are over as they are excellent source for Iron and vitamins . ...Read more
I had sex yesterday and I am doubtful if i could get pregnant anyway...But I am not sure of pregnancy so can I take i pill to be sure?
Yes. EC: To be very safe take emergency contraception (ec) as soon as possible. No prescription needed if 17 or older. Works best 0-72 hrs after sex but may work up to 120 hrs (5days). Ec encourages ovulation (release of an egg) not abortion and does not harm pregnancies. Check the website eclocator.Not-2-late.Com for info and location of nearby pharmacies. ...Read more

Several things: Be open and honest and discuss this with him. Find out his reasons for lack of desire. See if he is willing to discuss this with your obstetrician.

Does ascorbic acid in vitamin C really help terminate a pregnancy? The reason i ask, i think I am pregnant since I have not had my period and I am supposed to have it right about today or tomorrow. If I am I have decided to have an abortion but I am not
You : You are considering an abortion using mega-dose vitamin c . Is it safe? No. What kind of health problems can it cause for you? Diarrhea, abdominal cramps, headache, gastritis or stomach ulcerations, anemia, constipation, increased flatus, hot flashes, joint pain and loss of body stores of copper. When combined with Aspirin or anticoagulants there can be adverse interactions. There are a variety of conditions that prevent adequate metabolism of vitamin c, so you would not urinate out the excess. The proposed mechanism of action is that vitamin c interferes with the production of progesterone. Herbal abortions work by poisoning you. The theory is that it your toxin levels will be so high, that the it will kill the embryo. Because, this is a very dangerous business, it can also kill you or make you very ill. The success rate with killing the embryo is actually rather low. I recommend that if you are going to be sexually active that you use some form of birth control responsibly. ...Read more
"hi I am now 6 weeks pregnant and haven't had any check up yet can I also take flintstones as prenatal vitamins as I have not taken any?
Yes and yes: 6 weeks is around when women start scheduling their first prenatal visit. You aren't late at all! the reason, pregnancies before 6 weeks are difficult to visualize on ultrasound. Ideally, your doctor can see you in a week or 2-3. Also, it's okay to take flinstones. Sometimes vitamins make women nauseous. Most important is to eat a balanced healthy diet and get at least 800mcg Folic Acid a day. ...Read more

I have taken a Depo-Provera shot 3 months back and still not having peroids and i m not pregnant what should I do to have periods?
Wait and see: The depo can cause prolonged suppression of menstruation, ovulation. So it may be taking longer then 3 months to 'wear off'. If you don't want to become pregnant - then i would suggest using another form of contraception, just to be safe. You can have thyroid testing and hormone testing to see if anything else may be causing. Irregular periods can be common in 46 year old women. ...Read more
I really want to get pregnant but it's hard u take prenatal pills and have sex everyday what should I do next?
Is it the best time?: First of all, you don't have to have sex every single day to get pregnant. The prenatal vitamins are important. I am wondering if this is a good time for you to have a baby. Babies are a ton of work - and they are expensive! are you where you want to be with your career and education - and are you where you want to be with your relationship? If not, it would be ok to wait til it feels easier. ...Read more
