And, I also want to ask about the relationship, i.e. how many days I should not do sex with my husband after missed abortion .

Thanks for your query. You can very well plan your next pregnancy, there is as such no cut off limits, but most of the doctors suggest AFTER 6 weeks. And folic acid tablets are taken prophylactically to prevent NEURAL TUBE DEFECTS and its not a pregnancy hormone tab. Progesterone tablets are considered as pregnancy hormones, so you can very well take these tablets in your next pregnancy. All the best for your future pregnancy.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow ups.
Wish you good health.
