Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

hello Shahila...
Folic acid tabs helps in avoiding birth anamolies which can cause in upcoming pregnancy...
it will not make you conceive..
If you're pregnant or might become pregnant, it's critically important to get enough folic acid, the synthetic form of vitamin B9, also known as folate.. Folic acid helps prevent neural tube defects (NTDs) – serious birth defects of the spinal cord (such as spina bifida) and the brain (such as anencephaly).... If you are unable to conceive please get a checkup done with your doctor..
