Hi well come to HCM.
folic acid will not help you to get coceived, it is better to have during pregnancy as
a supplimental requirement of body. It is nothing but vitamin, and will not decide course
of your pregnancy. To conceive you had sexual relation during ovulation days ie
13 to 15 days from first day of your last period. thanks

hi manjula,
welcome to hcm
thanks for the query
ovral tab will prevent you from conceiving
may be your doctor has prescribed you it for regularising your periods
so if your periods become regular you can go for conceive.
try to have sexual relationship during period of ovulation i.e 14 days prior to the next expected date of period
you can take folic acid till 6 to 9 months. generally it can be started before planning to have a baby
take care
