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!

Folvite tablets do not help women to get pregnant.

Are you living in India? Many women are under the impression that this vitamin (folvite or folic acid) will help them get pregnant because I think doctors in India are not being clear about why women take Folvite.

Folvite tablets are vitamins (folic acid) to keep women healthy. They also help keep a pregnancy healthy after a woman gets pregnant so women take it during pregnancy to help the baby develop properly. But the tablets doesn't actually assist a woman to get pregnant like a fertility drug would.

Keep trying and I hope you have good news soon!

You can take one folvite tablet every day, even when pregnant.

You need to have sex at least every other day from days 10-18 of your cycle. The first day of your cycle is the first day of your period.

If you have been doing this and trying for more than a year, you both need to talk to your doctors about why you cannot get pregnant, it could be a health issue with your or your husband - he needs to be checked out too.

Hi Anon
Folvite tablets are vitamins, there is not usually a reason to call a doctor in order to take them. Brands generally suggest a call to the doctor in case there is a reaction to medication a person is taking.
