Hi

Folinext contains folic acid which is a very safe drug and can be taken even during pregnancy. Ovofar is a fertility improving drug.It helps in inducing ovulation and thereby increasing the chance of pregnancy.I would recommend a pelvic scan to rule out ovarian cyst which can cause irregular periods. Incase you are not planning for pregnancy,continue folic acid and ovofar can be taken after a few months. Carnitor is a general supplement which can be taken by your husband regularly.


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