Brief Answer: Yes Detailed Answer: Hi FOL 123 is a medicine containing folic acid which is a vitamin tablet which helps in proper development of brain function of baby if conceived. It doesn't matter if she is on menses or not it is safe and recommended to continue these medicines as per your doctor's advice. Meanwhile get your semen analysis done as it is required as part of investigation into infertility. Let me know if you have any more questions. Regards Dr. Mahesh Koregol
