Consumption of Folic Acid during Non-Pregnancy

My wife lost her pregnancy during her last carry. It was due to the improper formation of skull. Doc advised to abort. After one month, doc asked to take folic acid regularly. She is taking it from the last 3 months continuously. Is it ok? Can she have the folic acid (5mb) tab a day regularly? Will there be any side effects on long usage? Is it alright to take it during non-pregnancy?

There is no problems with long term use of folic acid. I presume that she is taking 5 milligrams a day. It is ok and good to take it when you are not pregnant before getting pregnant.

Hello Doc,
This is 26 yr old married lady.
Am on day 28th day of my cycle. I have been fcing irregular mences since last eight months, could say since we started planning family. I started developing premenstrual syndromes like guidiness, nausea, lower abdominal cramps, a bit of breast pain.
I ent to gyneac and after certain blood check ups found high FSH level. Got treated for that. Since then have developed very accurate premenstrual syndromes.
Last 4 months have got MC regular, of 28 days.
This month have finishe 28 days and a day more, this time, there is no premenstrual syndrome except i have  bit of nausea at morning nd eveining. Taking folic acid regularly. Having temperature about 98- 99C since past few days, this change temp is for about thrice a day. Having bit of swellings on face and legs, in hands too early morning, frequent urination. I sthere any chances of pregnancy? I have done home test 10 days back, but was negative.
I have been through urinary ifection and vaginal infection too, where taking antibiotic for one in last month.
Kindly help me to solve my queries and suggest me some better way to know my fertile period since i had an irregular cycle.
Thanks,
