+1 , just start it , if you're open to the possibility you could easily be less careful with contraception in a weaker moment ! There's no harm to taking it and it takes a while to get into a routine of not forgetting it anyway .

I went to see my GP way ahead of us getting married/TTC and she advised to start taking folic acid/supplement 3 months before starting TTC - thanksfully I heeded her advice as got pregnant the first month trying and was taking the supplement every day!
