Can I take folic acid tablets before pregnancy?

I m extremely sad. Yesterday miscarried my 2nd pregnancy. Dr. Couldn t tell me why. I feel so empty. I have a 2 1/2 daughter so I have had a successful pregnancy before. My hcg was 25. They said that was too low to be 6 weeks. We wnt to try again, but is it ok that I take folic acid, iron and a prenatal supplement prior to concieving? And how long should we wait?

Thankyou for contacting HCM.

I read your query carefully.
I would suggest you to wait for 3months for next conception because you just have a miscarriage fews day back.
And reagarding Folic acid intake
Its really good for health to take folic acid supplements.
In these 3 months you can take folic acid or iron supplements.
There is no harm.

Wish you good health.
