Hi Folks Do you really need to be on folice acid for 14 weeks before TTC? We are thinking of TTC mid May and I won't be 14 weeks on Folic acid until early June Is it too risky? advice needed.

hi I think it should be ok I hadnt heard 14 weeks-have heard 12 weeks before but also read that even if you get pregnant by accident to start taking it as soon as u find out as it can stil make a difference...you will be long enough on it by mid may in my opinion hope this helps *)
