Daily Health Tips: Should I Stop Taking Folic Acid Because I Have Fibroids In Pregnancy?


Q: Good Day…..Please I am pregnant and my first scan showed that I have fibroid (8.5cm) I want to know if I should stop taking Folic Acid as I heard that it may make the fibroid become bigger. Please advise me.
Thank you.

A: Fibroids do not feed on folic acid…they feed on hormones which is the reason why they may become bigger in pregnancy and tend to shrink during menopause. Please ensure that you take your folic acid so as to ensure your baby has no neural tube (‘spinal cord’) defects and be sure that your pregnancy is being supervised by an obstetrician.

Have a great night, people 😀

Here’s to a healthier you!
