Can I take Folic acid in order to get pregnant?

DID I HAVE A MISCARRIGE 10/11/10



Me and my partner have been trying for a baby for 3 months now im 22 and hes 20 i am taking folic acid and we are now using a lubricant to use during intercourse to help you conceive



we tested both negative month 1 & 2 of trying to concieve so last month we started having sex on days i would be most fertile using an online fertility calander you pop in your days of your last period and how long it lasts .. and it comes up days when you most likely to be fertile last month being between the 25th - 30st oct.. after around a week of having sex on these days . i started to feel sick and have slight period pain symptoms i was also very tired and my boobs started to get really sore along with sore heads and i was urinating slightly more than normal .. when the 8th of november came we did a home pregnancy test even though we knew it might be too early to pick up any pregnancy as it had only been just over a week .. the test turned out negitive as we suspected but i still had all the symptoms on the 9th ov november i began feeling more sick and my boobs got so sore i couldnt lean on them and had to sleep on my back also they were becomming quite firm aswell as my stomach being bloated and firm.. that night i started to feel a very bad like period pain in my right side of abdomen also my lower back and stomach were hurting and my ribs even began to ache alot i used hot water bottles to try calm the pain down but i could not get comfortable i also went very emotional for some reason and i silently cryed myself to sleep

the next day i had work and that night i had slight bleeding around tea time kind of a reddish brown colour and at night time my stomach was getting really sore again like a period pain i managed to get to sleep but in the morning i woke up to being covered in blood in which i thot it had to be my period ?!?! the blood was very heavy for the next 2 days i could also see small clots when i was whipping after being to the toilet and also stringly brownish red stuff comeing away from me the next day my periods seemed to be dissapearing they were getting lighter but still some pain and some clots when whipping .. but that afternoon i went to the loo as i felt something wet in my pants but didnt feel anything leaking when i had a look there was a bit of blood and a thum nail sized clot but when i rubbed it it didnt break up like all the smaller clots did it was almost like skin tissue with little lumpy pinky things inside it .. nothing i have ever seen before .. i was curiuse to see what it was so i tryed to seperate it with a bit tissue as it was like a full circular shape with a slit init and inside where the pinkish lumpy things it felt firmish i was going to put it into tissue and take it to the doctors to have a look at it looked and felt quite different to any clots ive ever had before .. i edned up just flushing it down the loo as i was at work and would not finish for a few hours .. later on i explained this to my partner .. and he thought that this was a bit odd aswell i havent yet been to the doctors and now all my pregnancy symtoms have gone almost imediatly after this clot like ball came away the next day i bled very lighly then alot then no blood atal .. and i stopped getting cramps .. my sore boobs are no longer sore and i dont feel as sick .. i also dont need to urinate as much and its beggining to make me and my partner think we have miscarried a baby before knowing for sure if we were pregnant

Hello,
Thanks for sharing your health concern with us. I appreciate you for the wonderful presentation of your symptoms in sequence. It appears that you have had a chemical pregnancy. Confirmation can be had through the blood test for pregnancy as the serum beta-hCG titres take some time to decline. You will also need a sonogram of the pelvis preferably in the trans-vaginal route to know the status of the pelvic organs and exclude any retained products. You can try once again for conception in six months after recovery. Wish you good health.
