My partnerand I are going to try for a baby in two months, and I went for a check up with an OB to ensure everything is OK. He said I should start taking folic acid 5mg in preparation of conception. I started doing that and have no side effects so far. Will there be any?

No, I don't think so! I took folic acid before and at the beginning of both my pregnancies and have never noticed any side effects and nor do I think there are any. The only issue I have with folic acid is that it is actually man-made, and the natural version is folate. You can get folate from foods, but you would have to be very careful about your diet.
