Folic Acid

MAg - October 5

Dr. Jacobs....
My husband and I plan to start trying to conceive this month. My ovulation date should be somewhere around Oct. 14-19. I just started taking A Women's multivitamin with 400 mcg folic acid yesterday. Will there be enough folic acid in my system to protect a developing embryo if I were to get pregnant in 2 weeks?

Thanks for your time and knowledge! : )

Data indicate that a wiman needs a minimum of 400 mcg of folic acid supplement, preconception, to minimize the risk of certain kinds of birth defects. That is the amount I recommend to my patients.
Good luck.
