I am in 7th week of my pregnancy can you please tell me some medicine or vitamin

Good morning, I am Dr Ruff, thank you for contacting us today

Congratulations on your pregnancy. You should be taking folic acid and vitamin D. If you buy a pregnancy vitamin then this will contain both.

I do feel I am low in terms of calcium for that what should I do doctor?

How can you feel low in calcium sorry?

A deficiency can cause tiredness, which is also common with pregnancy.

You cannot experience symptoms which make you crave a vitamin. No matter how you feel you cannot feel that you are deficient in a particular vitamin,

My nails are having white patches

These are often common and have little meaning. However a blood test can be done to check if you are concerned. But if you are taking a pregnancy vitamin and eating a well balanced diet, I wouldn't be concerned.

No problem, yes, they will arrange bloods for you and will be checking things like iron as well.
