Noon My Nma Astuty.?
I am menstruating, but I am taking Polavit medicine. I have a lot of menstruation.
Good morning Astuty, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. The drug you mentioned has a generic content of 400 micrograms of folic acid in each tablet. Folic acid is a form of vitamin B that has many functions in body development, starting from helping the process of DNA production, forming red blood cells, and preventing deformed babies.
Regarding your question, there is no relation between folic acid consumption and menstruation. You are not prevented from consuming folic acid during menstruation, nor will the consumption of folic acid affect the discharge of a lot of menstrual blood in yourself. So you can still take the drug, but if you have more menstrual blood, you should check with your obstetrician to see if there are other possibilities such as cysts, polyps, myoma, or certain infections that cause this.
Meanwhile, avoid stress, cigarette smoke, physical activity that is too heavy, and get adequate rest. Increase the consumption of water, fruits and vegetables. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
