Will Prenatal Vitamins Hurt You If You Are Over 50 Years Old
What are some of medication/vitamins you need to take when you are trying for babies? Am 27 years old.
Prenatal vitamins: Prenatal vitamins are typically full of b vitamins especially folate (folic acid) which if taken prior to getting pregnant lowers risk of spinal tube defects. Some studies suggest benefit to fish (oil) but that data is still early. Otherwise, best to check w/your family doc or OB for their specific recommendations given where you live & your specific medical, surgical & obstetric history. ...Read more

Im 41.I have regular period and good health. What are the precautions that I should know if i need to become pregnant now.Iv 2 kids the younger is 14.
Things to consider: At 41, you need to realize that you are not ovulating every month. Any pregnancy would be high risk and the chance for complications and pregnancy loss is greater. Miscarriage is greater because your chances for chromosomal abnormalities is about 1/50. Many women in their 40's have successful pregnancies, however, and if you are healthy, you probably will do fine.See your provider! ...Read more

I am 9 months pregnant and have not been taking my iron/prenatal supplements , will this harm my unborn child? I would really like to know quickly , thank you
Maybe/not: People were having healthy babies for thousands of years before we knew the benefits of supplements. Obvious defects like an open spine or quiet ones like low hemoglobin values are usually picked up in the newborn period. Pregnancy tends to extract what it needs from your body, so the supplements help protect you from long term deficiencies like osteoporosis. Skipping I them is not a good idea. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Should I take prenatal vitamins before/while we are trying to get pregnant? Which prenatal vitamins do you recommend?
Healthy diet: I recommend a healthy diet with adequate protein, calories and calcium. Be sure to get enough folic acid (in most bread and cereal products) or take a folic acid supplement. You can always take a multivitamin, but focusing on a healthy diet will be better for you and your baby in the long run. ...Read more
It is safe: It is safe for a non-pregnant woman of child bearing age to take a pre-natal vitamin. I'm not so sure it is going to help a whole lot with your hair growth. Hair growth depends on many factors, just one of them being adequate vitamin intake. So i wouldn't do this thinking it's the magic bullet to long hair. ...Read more
If I give my children a pretty balanced diet, are there any particular vitamins they won't get enough of?
No set answer: However, this is a common age to develop it...And also a perfect age to stop since the risk will continue as long as the person smokes. The reverse of this is that the risk of developing lung cancer goes down significantly after quitting for 5 years and is the same as a non-smoker by 10 years...So now is the time to stop! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes: There is nothing magical about prenatal vitamins. They are a way of assuring that women with rotten diets get enough vitamins for a healthy pregnancy. If you know how to eat in a healthful manner any multivitamin with minerals will be just fine. You can get all the selenium you need by eating a few Brazil nuts. ...Read more
