I take it. But it was at the suggestion of my ob/gyn and my husbands oncologist. None said it would help you get pregnant but good possibly help prevent birth defects

My dr said it could help if we both take it ttc . I hate when one dr says one thing and you hear something diff from someone else . Drs drive me crazy lol do you a pre nat vit with it or it alone . My pre vat vit has 1mg and then the dr gave me another 1mg to take .

I took extra folic acid along with my prenatals. I am pregnant, but not sure if the folic acid had anything to do with it.  Taking folic acid can only help.

Everyone is different. I took it before ttc because I used to smoke (about 5 years ago) and I read that if you used to smoke or have other health issues, taking folic acid helps your reproduction system.
