Thanks for posting in HCM.
I have read your description and understand your concern.
It is good that you have taken anti D injection as it is necessary to continue with pregnancy when there is Rh incompatibility.
Folic acid supplementation is known to keep functioning of tissue at its optimum. Iron supplementation would help to correct anaemia, which might have occurred during abortion or with D & C procedure due to blood loss.
There is no harm in taking it now as it could help in keeping the ovarian tissues healthy.
After conceiving, its intake is a must as it has beneficial effects for both mother and fetus.
Hope the information provided would be helpful.
All the best.
