I am 20 years old and pregnant. I took 4000mg of vitamin c yesterday and 500 today, is there side effects or birth defects because of it?
If you continued to take the huge dose, it can cause pre term birth. If you're taking prenatal vitamins you don't need to take extra C. Its best not to take anything without talking to your obstetrician.
