Hello,

Thanks for posting your query.

Folinine is a folic acid tablet and should be taken regularly when you are planning for a baby as it prevents the neural tube defects in a developing fetus.

Niftas contains nitrofurantoin and is given to control pregnancy while taking Niftas. You may plan for pregnancy in your menstrual cycle after completing this course.

Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.

Wishing you good health.

Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.

Hello,

Thanks for writing again.

Folic acid is advised in a dose of 5mg daily till the 12 weeks of pregnancy. You need to start taking it from the time you are planning your pregnancy.

The number of days between the periods determines the length of your menstrual cycle. In a regular 28 day cycle, day 11 to day 16 are considered as fertile days. Presuming your cycle length as 28 days, the fertile days would be from 14th XXXXXXX to 19th XXXXXXX

Hope my answer is helpful. Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries. Should you have any addition queries, I shall be available to help you.

Wish you good health

Regards

Hello,

Yes, you can take Folinine tablet and continue taking it until after the pregnancy is confirmed i.e. for first 3 months of pregnancy without fail.

Best wishes.
