Folic acid

Hello, I'm at 3 weeks and have yet to visit the gynae. Would like to know does gynae usually advise that folic acid 5mg (off the shelve at guardian) is good enough or should one consume more supplements? Thanks.

Folic acid is good enough. The gynae will only prescribe pregnancy multi vit when nearing end of the first trimester. Some people do take multi vit though, but my gynae says it’s not necessary at first trim.
