Hi Suryar,
Normally it is recommended to take folic acid supplements in 1st trimester of pregnancy.However research is now showing that the need for folic acid becomes even greater in the last trimester (last three months) of pregnancy, hence you can continue this tablet till the end of pregnancy.
Hope I have answered your query.
