Cod Liver Oil and Conception/ Pregnancy
Tillyboo · 07/08/2006 09:39
Does anyone know if taking cod liver oil poses any problems pre-conception and through pregnancy ?
I have been taking Extra Strength Cod Liver Oil with added Vitamin A for my stiff joints and have recently changed to normal cod liver oil as I'm concerned about the level of Vitamin A.
We may try for another baby and I know that too much vitamin A is not good.
The normal strength CLO states : 4000 I.U per 10ml and I take 5ml every day
The Extra Strength CLO states : 800 ug per 10ml and I was taking 15ml a day
I've asked 'Midwives online' but as yet had no response so I thought I'd ask Mumsnet
