Can Folic Acid be taken with birth control?


Should I continue it once i become pregnant?

Absolutely, it is important before and during pregnancy. When the baby is developing early during pregnancy, folic acid helps form the neural tube. Folic acid is very important because it can help prevent some major birth defects of the baby's brain (anencephaly) and spine (spina bifida).

Take 1 capsule per day, ideally in the mornings.
