Is it enough to take Centrum vitamin If I'm planning to be pregnant or I must take extra folic acid?

No, there's only .4 mg of folic acid in Centrum, and you should have at least .6 mg...and most pregnancy vitamins have 1 mg (or 1000 mcg). I know it's hard...and the pills often made me want to vomit; however, the folic acid is very important for your baby.

I'm not sure but why not check how much is in the centrum and then check how much is in the pregnancy vitamins, that should get you an answer. Also when doing this remember to compare on how many a day you need to take i.e centrum might be one a day but blackmores pregnancy vitamins are two a day.
