What Is Folic Acid Folart

just wanna ask what if folart folic acid and what are the chances of getting pregnant and also the side effects? thanks! ## Folic Acid is a nutritional supplement, a lack of it can have an effect on fertility and it is essential to a health pregnancy, to prevent birth defects, once you do get pregnant. However, I do not know what your chances of getting pregnant will be. The best thing you can do is follow your doctors instructions to increase your chances as much as possible. Has your doctor advised anything else? ## I am 3months pregnant when i started taking folic acid, in my 1st month and second month my ob advice me to take natalbes.. I dont know what will be the effect of late taking folic acid to my baby.. Do you think it will have bad effect to my baby??
