This tablets needs to be continue atleast till 15 to 20 weeks of pregnancy once you conceive.

when shud I take it
does folic acid help in conceiving also
You can take it as per your convenience, but to make it a habit, take them during breakfast or during night.
Folic acid doesn't help you conceive, but helps you to have a healthy baby.
The neurological and spine development of the baby will be optimal when one takes folic acid regularly.
