Happy New Year to you all, and a question about folic acid.
Hi Ladies

Happy New Year to you all. I hope this year brings you much happiness. And to all those ttc'ing this year...I wish you all the best.

Just a quick question as well, is it really necessary to be taking folic acid while ttc'ing? I have heard people say that it is important but since it can take many months to fall pregnant, does one still have to take it everymonth?

Thank you

It is essential to take folic acid before you actually fall pregnant. You need to have good stores at the time of conception.
