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?

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
