Hi Anon!

Thanks for your post! It's very hard to understand - if you are using a translater, try using a different one.

Folvite tablets are vitamins containing folic acid. Folic acid is important for a growing baby in the womb so lots of women take it before getting pregnant just to make sure they have it in their system before getting pregnant - or they take it after pregnancy. Some women take it every day as part of an all-round supplment, even though they have no intention of getting pregnant.

So yes, it's fine to take it now. It does not help a woman get pregnant, it is simply a vitamin that is important to a growing unborn baby.

Good luck to you. I'm very sorry you had a miscarriage, I know that is a very painful thing to happen. I hope you have good news for us soon.

Best,

~Susan
