Hi Manjula
Welcome to HCM
Read your prob, if you plan to get pregnant, you should get sonography for follicular study, so that you come to know about time of ovulation n do intercourse at that time. then there is more chance of getting pregnant. folic acid tab is given during pregnancy n iron deficiency anemia. you can take it. it helps in keeping your HB at normal leval.
