Folic Acid Intake


I am trying for pregnancy these days. In order to improve volume (1.5ml) and morphology(10% normal) of sperms, I am taking 800mcg Folic Acid with 400 Evion capsules. I am taking one tablet of each during my meal. Will these supplements help me in achieving my desired results? Or is this too much to take?

You can continue taking these supplements but along with these you would also need supplements that contains zinc, vitamin D and other vitamins so it is better to take a multivitamin and mineral supplement instead of just folic acid. Also try to make a habit of regular physical exercise, stop smoking if you are a smoker and take healthy food like fresh fruits and vegetables.

Thanks for the response. I never smoke and do regular exercise 4-6 days a week. I am taking Evion with folic acid. I am not sure which multivitamin and mineral can be taken. Can you recommend any supporting supplements? I know medicines are not recommended on this forum but these are supplements that do not require prescriptions in general.

Surbex Z is good. Another good one is Zeest MV.

I think you are taking the right medicines at the moment.
But there is no harm in consulting an andrologist to furthur improve your counts and the hope of achieving a pregnancy..
