Use Of 2 Types Of Vitamins While Pregnant Simultaneously?
Good morning, I’m now 18 weeks pregnant. When I checked my uterus to the midwife I was given vutamin etabion. Whereas when I check the womb to the obstetrician I was given vitamin osfit DHA. My question is whether these two vitamins can be taken side by side? thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Nutritional needs during pregnancy are indeed large enough so that they are often not easily fulfilled by ordinary dietary patterns. What's more, women whose pregnancy is still young (less than 20 weeks) often have problems with nausea, vomiting, and a significant decrease in appetite, so they are more at risk of experiencing nutritional deficiencies. This needs to be anticipated so as not to sacrifice the growing fetus in the womb. One effort to anticipate this can be done by providing appropriate pregnancy supplements.
Ideally, pregnancy supplements should be given to pregnant women according to their individual needs. Of course, this requirement is very individual, so the determination should be done after the doctor conducts a direct examination. Without checking your condition directly, we are not authorized to assess what pregnancy supplements are right for you, whether they come from your midwife or your obstetrician.
In general, the two supplements given to you have slightly different ingredients. Etabion contains ferrous gluconate, vitamin C, folic acid, vitamin B12, manganese sulfate, and so on. Meanwhile, DHA osfit consists of calcium carbonate, tuna oil, and also vitamin D3. If judging from the cand course alone, giving these supplements together may be done because of its complementary nature. Consumption of these two supplements in the near future is generally not dangerous either. However, in some sensitive people, some side effects can occur, such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, bloating, stomach cramps, and so on.
Therefore, as we mentioned above, ideally, your question is consulted directly with the obstetrician who is examining you.
I hope this helps.
