Me and my bf are trying for a baby.
Prob is that im still halfway through my pack of Birth control pills and have also missed more than 3.

Can I just stop taking the pack??

Will it take a long time for my body to go back to normal??

Also when am I alright to start taking the Folic Acid Tablets??

I'm not sure about the birth control question, but you should start taking the folic acid right away. The most important time for folic acid is before you even know you are pregnant.

Yes I have been taking Boots folic acid for months now and I just found out I am pregnant today. I think you should stop taking them now. They say to wait until you have a normal period so the sooner the better!

I stopped birthcontrol in FEB 07. I would finish this pack the start keeping track of your peroids I have had a normal period since feb it ranges from 26-29 days. You have to focus on your fertile signs. Take folic acid NOW.
