I had unprotected sex with my partner 11 days ago. I didn't had any orgasm. This saturday her periods has been started. Her periods are not regular. But this month (july) it came so late. She told me that bleeding is slightly less not so much and have clots also. I was having a high fever (103) 2 days ago. Today her temp is 99. She is feeling ok. She isn't having any headache. Morning sickness of soreness is breasts. I just want to know that is this slightly less bleeding (not so much less) is happening for that fever or this is implantation bleeding? As far I know implantation bleeding doesn't last for 4 days. And the colour of her bleeding is deep red as always. I am confused that is this her normal periods or she is pregnant. She is unable to do a pregnancy test at this moment. So by the above mentioned things can you help me to find out what problem actually she is having?

Vitamin B9 (Folic Acid) - Deficiency Risk and Symptoms
An adequate intake of Vitamin B9 is important as it helps the body as a to utilise amino acids which are the building blocks of proteins. It helps the body form blood cells in bone marrow and ensures rapid cell growth in infancy, adolescence, and pregnancy. Vitamin B9 plays a crucial role in producing nucleic acids (e.g., DNA), the body's genetic material.
Together with Vitamin B6 and Vitamin B12 it also helps control blood levels of the amino acid homocysteine which is associated with certain chronic conditions such as heart disease.
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) confirms that clear health benefits have been established for the dietary intake of folic acid (vitamin B9) in contributing to:
- normal blood formation
- normal homocysteine levels (high levels of homocysteine are related to the early development of heart and blood vessel disease)
- a normal metabolism of the immune system
- normal cell division
- normal maternal tissue growth during pregnancy
- normal amino acid synthesis
- normal psychological functions
- the reduction of tiredness and fatigue
In addition, the EFSA has confirmed that supplemental folate intake increases maternal folate status, which contributes to the reduction of the risk of neural tube defects (NTD).
Folate is found in a wide variety of foods but the richest sources are liver, dark green leafy vegetables (broccoli, brussels sprouts and spinach), beans and yeast. Other sources include eggs (specifically the yolk), milk and dairy products, beets, orange juice and whole wheat bread.
Folic acid (Vitamin B9) is a water-soluble vitamin and as such, it is unlikely to reach toxic levels. There is little danger of toxicity when it is taken orally. No adverse effects have been associated with the consumption of excess dietary folic acid.
Folic acid cannot be stored in the body, so you need it in your diet every day. Adults need 200 mcg of folic acid a day. However, if you are pregnant, thinking of trying to have a baby or likely to become pregnant, the NHS recommend that you take a 400 mcg folic acid supplement daily from the time you stop using contraception until the 12th week of pregnancy. This is to help prevent birth defects of the central nervous system, such as spina bifida, in your baby.
Symptoms of deficiency
- irritability and loss of appetite
Severe folate deficiency leads to a condition in which the bone marrow produces oversized immature red blood cells - this is called megaloblastic anemia in pregnant women folic acid deficiency can result in severe or even fatal birth defects such as neural tube defects
