Using Vitamin C To Prevent Pregnancy

Or, by preventing ovulation (this is how traditional hormonal birth control works). Aspirin and vit c will not prevent pregnancy! ...Read more
Vitamin c can cause a miscarriage. Can it cause one if the egg has not been fertilized yet or is being fertilized or will it help prevent pregnancy?
No, no, no, and no: Vitamin c does not cause miscarriages. Miscarriages happen frequently all over the world (to a big portion of natural pregnancies) and people take vitamin c every day, but the two things are unrelated. A woman cannot miscarry until after she is actually carrying (no such thing as miscarrying before or during fertilization). Vitamin c does not prevent pregnancy. Don't worry about eating oranges! ...Read more

Hope this helps. ...Read more

Pregnancy unlikely: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, vaginal spotting, or medications. A test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a negative result may be due to testing too early such as less than 2 weeks after conception. ...Read more

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
Is it safe to take cal-c-vita (mainly 1000mg vitamin C & 250mg calcium & 300ui vitamin d & 15mg vitamin b6) during pregnancy?
The pregnancy test was negative, I drank green tea, parsley and high dosage of vitamin C. I have cramps. And my period hasn't come but I'm PMSing?
Not pregnant: It's so frustrating to have PMS symptoms and yet not to have one's period. There's not much you can do other than speak to your doctor if it lasts for too long (or happens repeatedly each month) about using some progesterone to provoke a period. To my knowledge, there have been no studies showing that herbal medications work to provoke a period. But provera (medroxyprogesterone) does work. ...Read more

What brand or exactly should I buy from Walmart in vitamin c to prevent upper respiratory infections. I also doing the rest like exercise and eat righ?
Forgive my frankness: Vitamin c does not prevent colds. Neither does confirming to some health guru's claims about "eating right". You are going to catch a few upper respiratory viral infections yearly. We doctors do too. I am very glad you are exercising but the benefits, though great, are modest in promoting anti-viral immunity. Best wishes. ...Read more
