Thanks for your query...

The only acceptable medication in the first three months of pregnancy is Folic acid...
Other than that there is no need of any another medication unless and until you have any specific indications for it...

So it would be wise for to stop taking nutrilite Natural B tablets...

Hope this helps...

Hello Doctor, I had my first visit to the Gynec today after i did my HPTs at home which turned out to be positive. The Doctor has prescribed me two tablets - Comfol and ZincoVit, one dose daily. However when i asked her that I have been taking Nutrilite Food Supplements of Iron Folic C and Daily Multivitamin Tablet, she said that iron is not required during the first three months of pregnancy, what I believe is that Folic Acid and Iron are important for the growth of the baby and to avoid any neural defects. Further she has suggested me a 3-nite suppository for slight vaginal infection. Can you please guide me whether the above prescriptions are OK to follow. I know that I have to trust the doctor and go with her advise, but I just want to make everything is sure. May be you can explain me in detail. P.S. I am 5 weeks pregnant today.
