Folic acid is a safe drug that is routinely prescribed prior to pregnancy as a prophylaxis against certain congenital anomalies of the is highly advisable to take the drug.
However it causes gastrointestinal side effects that too at a higher dose.This doesnot warranty the discontinuation of the drug.

If you are married for more than a year and have no menstrual irregularities you can go drugs inducing ovulation, provided your and your husband's investigations are satisfactory.
