Is it advisable to take multivitamins in the 11th week of pregnancy?

Hi Dr. My wife is pregnant. She is now at 11th week of her pregnancy. When we consult a dr. she asked to take Gestrenol tablets and Zifolet(Folic Acid & Zinc Sulfate Monohydrate). Is it needed to take any vitamin tablets. My wife is not in good health. Thank you.

Sir I understand your concern for your wife's situation. Yes definitely she can take multivitamin during 11th week of pregnancy but advisable is to take only folic acid tablets in first three months of pregnancy. From 4th Month onwards she can take all multivitamins. I would still suggest you to consult your gynaecologist if any problems she is facing. I hope my answer will help you to understand your concern for your wife's situation. Have happy and safe pregnancy ahead. Good luck to both of you.
