so Im new here Hi everyone....Im 5 weeks and My gynecologist prescribed vit E, C and folic acid but im ready about vitamin E online and im not so clear...is anyone else taking vitamin e here??? really worried...
I would be cautious with taking vitamin E since it is a fat soluble vitamin and stored up easier than water soluble ones. Fat soluble ones are a, d, e, and k. Did they say why they wanted you on it? I don't really know a good reason to take extra and definitely not for an extended time. My two cents, I'd wait on the vit E.
DDCC. How much vitamin E? I am pregnant and taking it as well. Early in the pregnancy I was taking 800 IU/day and now I'm down to 200/day. Everything I've read says this is perfectly safe and helpful in certain circumstances. Typically they suggest you stop the E 5 or so weeks prior to your due date so you don't end up with a retained placenta.
Supposedly it is helpful for those who have a history of placental abruption. I started taking it this time because my placenta had separated from the uterine wall, and last pregnancy, I did have an abruption. That said, abruptions are pretty uncommon.
