Hello,

L-arginine is an amino acid preparation and will help to improve general health of fetus. It will also helps with oligamnios(low AFI) as well. You can safely take L-arginine without any concerns.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
