Hi, I have gone through your question. Loette is oral contraceptive pills and they are advised to 3-4 months before planning conception so that subsequent ovulation is regular and predictable.
The oral contraceptives have no long term effects on the body after discontinuing them, and hence no effect on the pregnancy or fetus.
Folic acid is recommended while planning pregnancy pregnancy and in early pregnancy, as it is known to decrease the incidence of congenital anomalies.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Wishing you good health.
