Vitamin A

Can you take too much vitamin A?

The answer is a definite YES, according to fertility doctors. In fact, if you are trying to become pregnant, you should never take more than 5,000 IU of vitamin A. Some fertility doctors even recommend eliminating it completely from your vitamin regiment because if you do get pregnant, it can have devastating effects on your baby. The vitamin A can potentially become toxic for the embryo as is it is developing. Women with prior liver problems seem to be at the greatest risk for vitamin A toxicity.

So if you are taking vitamin A and trying to conceive, talk with your doctor!
