Yes,you can continue Folvite also.

Hello dear,
Thanks for trusting hcm about your health care.
I have gone through your history and understand your concerns.
You can continue your Folvite tablet along with autrin and shelcal tablet but as such folvite ( folic acid) is usually mantadory preconception and in first trimester because it is helpful in neural growth of baby.
Hope found useful, feel free to ask more information.
Good luck.
