Thanks your query to Health Magic,
It is better to start folic acid when you are planning to have baby. Folic acid is water soluble vitamin has no adverse effect and overdose cause excretion in urine. Do urine pregnancy test , this test tells you earliest about the pregnancy before USG or other investigation .
