I am 6 months pregnant. Can I take biotin supplements to reduce hair fall? Is it safe to take biotin supplements?
Hello, I am pregnant for 6 months & experiencing severe hair fall. I never suffered from this issue. Should I take a biotin supplement? Is it safe? I am 24 years old female.
@elyn Hello, Biotin is also known as vitamin H or B-7 and yes, the intake of prescribed biotin is safe during pregnancy. Supplemental biotin can help in curing the deficiency of biotin, but too much of it might increase the chances of a miscarriage. Studies conducted on animals show that biotin is teratogenic and may result in a miscarriage. Therefore, you must consult your doctor before you start taking any supplemental biotin.
