Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Folic acid supplements are given as nutritional supplement and also to help reduce the chances of neural tube defects in baby in case you become pregnant or plan to become pregnant in the near future. These do not affect your period pattern. If you have observed changes in your period pattern, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation to look for the underlying cause. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you regulate your periods. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
