What should the dosage of Folic acid be during pregnancy?

If I suspect I am pregnant, all symptoms point there, shd I start taking one tab of 5 mg folic acid or should I take half or one fourth of the tablet daily! I haven't yet been to the doctor since home pregnancy test was negative on the day of period will do it again tomorrow but I know I am pregnant! Bec I am never late for a period

Hello dear,I understand your concern.In my opinion the folic acid 5 mg one daily can be taken.I suggest you to repeat the test after a week of missed period.The test gives accurate results if done after a week of missed period.The symptoms of pregnancy start after 2 weeks of missed period.
Best regards...dr.srilatha
