Customer Question

Hello, thanks for taking my question. I typically have a 26 day cycle so based on that, last Tuesday would have been the start of my expected period and tomorrow I should be five weeks pregnant. I have been taking a vitamin with 800mcg folic acid for the past year. I am concerned because for the past couple of weeks I was drinking one cup of green tea most afternoons. Now I am reading that it blocks folic acid absorption and I'm worried I was consuming it at a critical time without knowing.
