Hi everyone, I hope everyone is ok

I just wanted to double check that I should be taking Folic Acid now when I am ttc? I have read that I am supposed to but you lot in here seem to know everything there is to know about ttc so I though I'd double check!! Laughing

Hi J9 Ideally 3 months before, but if you start taking it now as you are ttc thats fine and then carry on for the first 3 months of pregnancy WHEN that happens, hopefully soon. Good luck pupx

Yep...totally agree. My doc says you can never start taking folic acid too early so I have been taking it every day since Christmas. There is also some info on the web about men not getting enough Folic Acid. Its only a very new study but might be worth googling....def cant do any harm! xx

Hia J9.

Im not sure if men should actually take Folic Acid as I only briefly read the email but apparently new studies have shown that men also need to build up their folic acid in the same way that women do. Whether there are special tablets or not I could not say but Im fairly sure there are certain foods which contain extra folic acid. No matter what, im a bit of the opinion that you cant have too much!!!

HTH

Luv Jo. xx
