In brief: You SHOULD take it

Folic acid is recommended for women contemplating pregnancy.
The recommended dose for neural tube defect prevention in pregnancy is 400 micrograms, or 0.4 mg/milligrams daily. All women thinking of pregnancy should be taking this as part of their prenatal vitamin package. Good wishes:)
