I am 26/f. I am hypothyroid and take 150 mcg of levothroid. In my first pregnancy, the feutus had fibular hemimelia i.e. the limbs were not properly developed and I had to undergo abortion . Second pregnancy was a miscarriage . I am trying to get pregnant again. My question is about the dosage of folic acid I should take. I take prenantal vitamins which contains 800 mcg of folic acid. Is this sufficient or should I take more. I read somewhere that I should take 5000mcg of folic acid. Can someone please clarify?
Thanks for query,
Usal folic acid dose is enough as you have in prenatal.
But you have pregnancy problems you may require higher dose of folic acid.
How much to be taken let your gynaec decide,
Cosult your gynaec and seek advice.
ok and bye.
