My husband and I are going to start trying for a baby, I was told to continue with contraception for a while and take folic acid before I get pregnant to decrease birth defects so I've got some vitamin tablets which i will take everyday. However, I always eat a breakfast cereal fortified with folic acid every morning. Does this count as me taking folic acid or should I still use contraception until the vitamins kick in so to speak? Thanks in advance for any responses.
