    Are Folic acid pills effective?

Me and my partner have decided to try regardless of the situation so he bought me folic acid pills and I was taking them for the past 1 and a half months, now I am on pregnacare since Monday . Is there a possibility that it can work

Folic acid is good for the baby and it prevent the congenital anomalies of the baby, However it will not improve fertility and blocked tubes can not be reversed with folic acid.

If the tube are blocked, better to go for a laparoscopy. Consult an infertility specialist and he will direct you accordingly. If you fails conceive, newer techniques like IVF may also be tried.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
