Does Biotin Affect Fertility?
Good night, I have already consumed biotin at a dose of 7500 mcg tablets. Because you want to lash the beard. And now stop consuming first. I want to ask whether biotin can affect or even interfere with fertility? Because many of my friends questioned that too. So far, what I know from various sources has no effect, but I want to make sure again through HealthReplies.com, hopefully my questions can be answered. Thanks for your attention.
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Biotin is actually another name for vitamin B7, and is found in everyday foods such as egg yolks and bananas. Even so, for those who experience vitamin B deficiency, biotin is also available in supplement form, and is usually given to those who experience symptoms such as hair loss, difficulty sleeping, to get tired easily.
For children over the age of 10 years and adults, the standard nutritional adequacy rate for biotin per day is in the range of 30-100 mcg / day, with a maximum dose of 30,000 mcg or 30 mg per day. So that way, you still consume biotin at normal levels and won't trigger side effects. Which is the condition of excess biotin is also a rare thing because the body will immediately remove the excess biotin available. Say there is an overdose of biotin, the symptoms are only in the form of redness of the skin, rashes and itching appear, can also trigger insomnia, and thirst as well as excessive urination, not interfere with fertility.
Therefore once again it is safe for you to continue taking it as usual, and if there are any symptoms appear, immediately consult a doctor to be given further treatment. So, hopefully answering your question.
