ask: Will Folvite Tablets delay the periods? Does it change the menstrual cycle?

I am 24 years old female. I am taking Folvite tablets for the past 1 month as advised by the doctor (as me and my hubby are planning for a baby). My menstrual cycle is 26 days usually. Will having Folvite tablets delay the periods? My cycle has crossed 28 days by now. So are there chances of me being pregnant?

Hi Anon

Clomid helps with ovulation but it's IVF and the implantation of multiple embryos that makes twins more likely. While Clomid can increase the odds of twins by several percentage points, it shouldn't be taken in the hope that twins happen.

Otherwise, having twins can be genetic but only on the mother's side. Having identical twins is a crap shoot - there is no genetic component. Older women and black women have a higher chance of twins.

I'm not sure why your husband wants twins but your focus should be having a healthy pregnancy (and conceiving first), rather than trying for multiples.

Folvite is a vitamin (folic avid) that helps with keeping a pregnancy helpful.

I hope your husband is aware of how having multiples works.

Good luck in conceiving, you sound like you are doing the best you can!

Hi Anon

Folate tablets are vitamins that help foster a healthy pregnancy. At 29 most women and men are advised to wait about 12 months of trying for a baby before consulting a doctor to see if there are any problems.

So give yourself another 5-6 months of trying for pregnancy before talking to your doctor.

Hi sandhya

We have said many times that folvite tablets do not help women to get pregnant. I think doctors in India are not telling their patients this. Folvite tablets are vitamins (folic acid) to keep women healthy. They also help keep a pregnancy healthy after a woman gets pregnant but they don't help her get pregnant at all.

Good luck and I hope you have good news soon!
