This is scary. I was recently diagnosed with a B-12 deficiency, in the form of "pernicious aneamia", which means that it's a problem with absorption. So no matter how much I eat of the stuff it won't go in! I'm on a life time course of injections once every 3 months, not too scary and apart from that it doesn't have any impact. But this article shows that there are bigger impacts.
It was only by a chance test that the Dr found my deficiency, it can be years before any symptoms present. If you are thinking of getting pregnant, I would ask that you get your Dr to check.
