Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Since your pregnancy test was negative you were having delayed periods only.Doctor suggested you to take folic acid which helps in baby's brain development thinking that you might be pregnant and it may be positive later. It is just a coincidence to have periods the next day.
