Folic acid is important to conceive
Posted in 2012

Folic acid has been proven to reduce a baby's risk of neural-tube birth defects such as spina bifida, and it is linked to a lower incidence of heart attacks, strokes, cancer, and diabetes.
Most women of child-bearing age should take a supplement with 400 micrograms (mcg) daily for at least a month before pregnancy, and 600 micrograms during pregnancy. If you have a family history of neural-tube birth defects or take medication for seizures, your healthcare provider may suggest that you boost your daily intake to 4,000 mcg, or 4 mg, starting at least a month before you conceive and continuing throughout your first trimester.
A good over-the-counter prenatal vitamin should contain more than the minimum recommendation of folic acid, between 600 and 800 mcg – what you'll need during pregnancy. In addition, you can eat folate-rich foods, such as dark green leafy vegetables like spinach or kale, citrus fruits, nuts, legumes, whole grains, and fortified breads and cereals.
Folic acid is a water-soluble vitamin, so your body will flush out the excess if you consume too much. But there's a downside to being water-soluble, too: You can lose a lot of this vitamin in cooking water, so steam or cook vegetables in a small amount of water to preserve the folate.
Be aware that getting too much folate may hide a vitamin B-12 deficiency, which is sometimes a problem for  vegetarians. Ask your doctor or midwife if you think you may be at risk.
Every one you require is available in your healthy food, i,e.  folate, folic acid, vitamin B 12  which will not give you any side effects or reactions..  Healthy food is always safe

My advise
1....  Not only folic acid you need Iron and Vitamin B12 to conceive
2...   Follow healthy habits to solve it
3....  Drink sufficient water
4..... Eat healthy food
5....  Sleep minimum of 5 to 7 hours
6...   Avoid tensions
7...   Be happy with your life partner
