When I was in Ballari, one of the doc suggested that in 7 month I need not take folic acid but must continue with iron and calcium till delivery . Upon coming to Lucknow , other doc u u adviced to take all three...pls suggest if I shall go by her advice.

Mostly the iron and calcium tabs prescribed from second trimester have folic acid added. Have you checked with your doc about the tablet composition?

Hi Ankita, I was also advised folic in the beginning but later on I took only calcium and iron. Pls do talk to your Dr. About this. These are supplements that will benefit you. No harm .

Satarupa B Kaur Nd Priya sood thanks , will again ask the doc about the same
