You should be taking a prenatal vitamin - which has other vitamins and minerals in it and folic acid and Biotin! The B vitamins can raise your blood pressure - BUT I've NEVER heard of bleeding from Folic Acid! The folic acid is to help with the nervous system of the baby and the spinal column! Most doctors will tell you to take it before you conceive! As the spinal colum starts developing right away! The Folic Acid cuts down on the likely hood of Spina Bifida! So ALWAYS listen to your doctor OK? JUST because 1 woman had bleeding does NOT mean it is from Folic Acid - it was probably the doctor stopping ALL pills! Good luck and congratulations!

Well I am on my second pregnancy, I miscarried my first after startin folic acid exactly 6 hours later I was bleeding. I'm pregnant again at 6 weeks now, started folic acid yesterday n the same has happened again, I think it's not always a gud thing n not all women take it, if u have a gut feeling, don't take it, I wish I followed mine, I have an emergency scan 2day but lesson well and truely learnt, the folic acid is now in the bin

I was spotting a bit, the spotting went heavy, and I was advised to up my folic acid. Each time I took my dose of folic acid, I had bleeding started up every time again for another 6 hours. Then the bleeding would stop, all would be good, and I'd take my dose, and the bleeding would come on again bright and heavy. I looked into it a little, and my diet has high contents of folic acid just because I have a lot of green smoothies and bananas daily. So for now, I'm laying off the folic acid supplements, eating healthy, and I may take one here and there if I don't eat well for a day or two -- once all spotting of any sort have stopped. But I'm no doctor! Just a healthy preggo who's learned to trust nature and super healthy eating.

Hi, I'm very confused. This could be my 2nd child. I missed my whole July cycle, however I just got my IUD taken out. Before it got taken out I took two home pregnancy tests which showed up positive. Now each Dr I went told me they're showed up negative; however couldn't explain the pregnancy symptoms. The same day I got my IUD taken out the Dr prescribed me some prenatal vitamins and some Folic Acid vitamins. Could some please explain too me what could possibly be going on. Why would she prescribe those meds if my pregnancy test came back negative?

I bled. 3 pregnancies. Not a coincidence. Miscarried last pregnancy after continuing use of folic acid and just recently found I am pregnant and started using folic and I am spotting. It's probably really rare but it happens. Be careful.

I’m here because I searched “folic acid spotting”. I haven’t inseminated yet, so no chance I’m pregnant, but since I started taking folic acid my last two periods have been really out of whack (I am usually like clockwork). Last month was weirdly light and short. Went to clinic for cycle monitoring on day 11 and they said i’d already ovulated. So now I’m approacjing when my period should be due- I’ve been spotting realllyyy lightly but consistently for the past 4 days. I’m nervous about conceiving but I feel like the folic acid is making my anxiety worse? I don’t know for sure. But the spotting is definitely out of the ordinary. I get a lot of folate every day through my diet and hate taking vitamins. I think I’m going to stop taking them.

It's interesting I had a operation and they gave me folic acid I haven't stopped bleeding since I started them. I'm going to give it a break and I'll let you know. Because no one can bleed for 3 weeks that's not normal
