Thanks for the query.
Better you first go for pregnancy test.
Preferably blood test, if not available urine test.
If test comes positive you take only folic acid tablets.
Because iron tablets in will increase the early pregnancy nausea and gastritis.
If test comes negative you can take fefol as advised by your doctor.
Take care.
