I am female: will men's multivitamins affect me?

No

Women
And neither will a women's multivitamin. Many studies now show that multivitamins are essentially worthless, if not potentially harmful for women, except in a handful of select cases such as folate for pregnancy. Save your money for healthy, whole foods.

What is a good multivitamin for 18 year old female?

It depends

Women
A healthy eating 18 year-old female does not really rrquire multivitamins, unless, there are specific reasons. If she has gastrointestinal disorders, anemia, malnutrition or in any conditions that affect nutritional absorption should benefit with supplementation.

Daily multivitamin is ok for healthy female of 43year older?

Yes-maybe

Open-uri20130205-18004-19llbdp
Previously, it was not recommended & is still controversial. However, many women do not get all the nutrients they need. Ideally, it would be best to get your nutrients from 'real' food & exposure to sunlight (re Vit D). Nutrients are best absorbed from real healthy food. Calcium doesn't appear to be well absorbed from supplements, & they may even be harmful. And watch Vit A intake-too much is bad

Would a multivitamin help with female hair thinning? Is there a specific vitamin for this?

Female hair loss

Vitamin_a
There are some vitamins for hair, skin and nails, which typically include biotin. These however will not help regrow hair. There are numerous causes of hair thinning or loss in women and the diagnosis can be sometimes very clear cut and other times very difficult to figure out. Your best bet is to find a dermatologist with expertise in hair loss in women if it is concerning you.

Im a female 32 yrs ,do i need to start takin multivitamins if yes pls sugest few n wil i put on wait by takin these?

Good mulitvit, Vit D

It's best to get vits from your diet, but the majority of Americans don't get enough Vit A, E, D, Folic Acid, Calcium, Mag. & chromium from their diets & over 1/3 are deficient in C, Zinc & B6. Thus, unless you have an exceptionally healthy diet it is wise to take a high quality mulivit. plus about 5000 IU of D in fall & winter (year-round if you wear sunscreen or avoid sun).Please see my comment:

Is 343mg(Iron pills+multivitamin) too much for a female of 18 years old? I have heavy menstrual periods so my doctor prescribed me iron pills.

No

Medication
The vast majority of women are relatively iron deficient due to their menstrual periods. They should take an iron containing multivitamin. If iron levels are low, additional iron supplementation may be required even in higher doses than you are taking.
