Milk Consumption Plans For Pregnancy After Taking Folic Acid Supplements?
good afternoon, my name is Dian, aged 25 years, I just got married November 2019 yesterday and not yet pregnant. I want to ask, may I take prenagen esensis milk and take folid acid medicine?
Thank you for the question.
Most couples, indeed want to get pregnant immediately after marriage. It's just that the potential for someone to get pregnant after marriage can certainly be different, depending on the regularity in sexual intercourse and the fertility of themselves and their partners.
Meeting nutritional needs is an important aspect of pregnancy planning. In order to produce quality eggs and sperm cells, you and your partner need to consume a variety of foods that are of balanced nutritional value, rich in vitamins and minerals, not just folic acid. Consumption of folic acid in pregnancy planning is not only useful in improving the quality of eggs and sperm cells, but also can prevent fetal defects and optimize the development of nerve cells, heart, blood vessels, as well as various fetal organ systems later.
Nowadays, there are a lot of milk for pregnancy preparation in which the nutritional content in it has been adjusted to what the expectant mother needs in preparing for her pregnancy. Most of this milk is actually also equipped with folic acid. So, by consuming pregnancy preparation milk, you are no longer required to take folic acid supplements. Folic acid can not only be consumed in the form of supplements. A variety of natural foods, such as dark green leafy vegetables, whole grains, seafood, meat, and fortified cereals also contain a lot of folic acid so you can consume it as an alternative to taking additional folic acid supplements.
The need for folic acid and other nutritional variations can be different for each person. Therefore, although in general it is not dangerous to consume folic acid supplements after consuming milk for pregnancy preparation, you should still check yourself to the doctor or obstetrician if you want to consume folic acid supplements in the long run, ok?
I hope this helps.
