Hi doctor

Before this i eat folic acid for 3 month and then i stop for 2 month due to personal reason. But if now im pregnant for example for 1 week, will this effected my pregnancy later since i didnt take folic acid before i get pregnant?

Hi and thank you for asking us

Through the question and statement you gave on the above section, i completely understand your concern over this matter. For your information, it will not affect your pregnancy as long as you continue to take the folic acid during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. As folic acid is important in preventing any spinal development defect.

Pregnancy is a beautiful journey into motherhood. Make sure you get enough nutrients for you and your baby.
