just curious to know whether all women ttc but know they cannot, continue to take folic acid.
the reason i am asking is just recently on a checkup at hospital(not ivf related) the Dr saw on my notes that am am awaiting ivf and said to me "are you taking your folic acid?" when i said no she looked shocked.
the reason i haven't been taking them is because i never felt that i am going to conceive naturally and therefore didn't think i would have to take it yet.
should i be taking it now

Hi.  I started taking Folic Acid 3 months before beginning my IVF treatment and I bought 'Pregnacare'.  I asked a chemist who said that this product has everything that one needs.  I would definitely start taking it if you are planning treatment.  Good Luck x

I must admit that the notes from my clinic recommend you have been taking it for a few months before the treatment starts but no-one did ever ask me.  

As the treatment was planned a few months before I started taking Sanatogen Pronatal three months previously.

I would definitely start taking something now.

Hi Kerry,

I typed Folic Acid Liquid into google and it came up with some results suggesting that is it available in injectable and liquid form.

Maybe worth asking your pharmacist?

Good Luck
