No: Geritol is not known to help you conceive. If you are trying to conceive, its best to be on pre-natal vitamins rather than Geritol. Best wishes!

Can taking geritol liquid stop you from getting a period?

Can taking geritol liquid stop you from getting a period?

Not likely: I've not heard of anyone taking geritol liquid to stop a period. I'm assuming you are talking about the vitamin supplement, that is advertised for seniors. If you are sexually active consider checking a pregnancy test if you missed your period.

Will liquid Geritol help? I've been trying to get pregnant since high school

It couldn't hurt.: Geritol, or any vitamin supplement could help you conceive, in particular if you had some vitamin or iron deficiency that it helped to correct. However, if you have been unable to get pregnant, and have been trying for 12 years, then I feel you really need to see a doctor to talk with you, examine your, and do some tests to help figure out what is the problem.

I'm taking geritol and I'm bleeding. What is this?

From where?: From where are you bleeding? Nose? Gums? Rectum? Penis or vagina (you didn't state gender)? Geritol is a brand of vitamins (http://www. Geritol. Com/) marketed towards elderly when I was growing up. Regardless, vitamins shouldn't make you bleed. So you need to go see your family doctor for an evaluation. If you feel lightheaded, faint, dizzy, as if you might pass out, call 911 & unlock front door

Is it a bad idea for a person in her 20's take geritol?

Is it a bad idea for a person in her 20's take geritol?

No: Geritol is a group of vitamins for the elderly. Most multivitamins have very low dosis of vitamins in each pill so most of the time is not dangerouse to take them. Unless you have a serous disease of the kidney or liver or allergy to any of the components of geritol most likely won't hurt.

I'm taking geritol and I'm bleeding. Should I be concerned?

I'm taking geritol and I'm bleeding. Should I be concerned?

Where from? How much: Geritol is moot when it comes to bleeding. Seek help if you feel weak, woozy, dizzy, lightheaded etc which suggests anemia from blood loss. You didn't indicate your gender or where from you are bleeding, nor how much (difficult to quantify). Menstrual bleeding is expected monthly. Blood in urine or stool should be evaluated. Nose bleeds are common. Sorry but we need more info.

Do I need to start geritol the day of my cycle or can I start before?

Do I need to start geritol the day of my cycle or can I start before?

Geritol: Geritol (http://www. Geritol. Com/) is a brand of multivitamins. As such, they're meant to be taken daily w/o regard to your cycle. So it really doesn't matter. Just do it. Well, that's assuming that you believe that multivitamins will make a difference (although no such research evidence exists yet). Instead, focus on eating healthy, exercising regularly & getting enough quality sleep.

Does Geritol help you gain weight?

Does Geritol help you gain weight?

Danger: Taking extra iron as a man can cause damage to your liver. Geritol is not a medicine for weight gain. It is a vitamin with iron. A man should never take extra iron without a specific reason prescribed by a physician.

I have to start geritol the day of your cycle or can you start before? What do I do?

Ask your doctor: Truthfully, it really doesn't matter. We used to associate the elderly w/Geritol. But presumably you're female (you didn't describe your gender although you mentioned your cycle) so you probably lose a bit of iron w/your menses, which is where Geritol comes in. Realistically, if that's the case, it really doesn't matter when you start, since we don't cycle vitamins as much as take them daily.

Does geritol help gain weight? Trying too gain a few pounds too be at my right weight.

Does geritol help gain weight? Trying too gain a few pounds too be at my right weight.

Not really: Geritol is a multi-vitamin supplement and as such has minimal caloric value. A better bet would be to add an extra 500 calories of healthy food to your diet on a daily basis. This would increase your weight by about a pound a week if everything else was kept stable. Taking the vitamin alone will not stimulate weight gain.

Can geritol help get you pregnant?

Can geritol help get you pregnant?

No, that is: A rumor. There is some evidence that iron supplementation may help ovulation and geritol has iron, but there is no geritol effect. Many women have gotten pregnant on geritol but it was coincidence. The effect of the iron is minimal but it won't hurt.

Want work more to get pregnant geritol or prenatal pills im 23

Want work more to get pregnant geritol or prenatal pills im 23

Hello.: Hello. Geritol is a brand of multivitamin which has extra iron and is manufactured by glaxo-smith-kline. Iron content is between 9.5 mg and 16 mg in tablets and liquid has 18 mg. It has been touted to help women become pregnant (anecdotal) however the average prenatal vitamin has about 30 mg of iron. Prenatal vitamins also have higher doses of Folic Acid which is very important. If you plan to get pregnant, prenatal vitamins are the way to go because of the added folate (folic acid).
