Folic acid should not affect your cycle. It sounds like irregular cycles that should settle shortly otherwise consult a gynae for a check-up

Follic Acid will not affect your cycle. Once you stop taking the pill, your body takes up to 3 months to regulate itself again, and this is possibly what is happening at the moment.
While on the pill, one's cycle is allways 28 days, but when you are off the pill the body determines its own cycle lenght and it can be anything between 24 and 32 days.
Just continue keeping track of your cycle lenght and you will see, that it will normalize soon.

Good luck and enjoy the trying to conceive.
