Folic acid

Hi folks, Small question about folic acid dosage levels. I currently take the wellwoman preconceive tablets every day which has folic acid as part of it. I was thinking of also taking a folic acid tablet in addition, to make sure I'm getting enough. Does anyone know what levels are considered beneficial during IVF and after.

Many thanks in advance,

Hi Smallcat,

I'm pretty sure the Wellwoman tablets have the recommended dose which is 400 micrograms daily, so you shouldn't need anything further.

Hi! the dose must be 400 micrograms of acid folic. I don't think it is a good ideea to take more because your body takes some folic acid from food as well. I am taking Pregnacare, it was recomanded by my dr. But I think all of this vitamins for pregnancy contains the right amount of folic acid.

Goodluck! x
