    Same! My levels dropped to 11 despite a high iron diet and never having any issues before - didn't get below 44 with DS. So now I am also taking Ferro-grad

    Same, the one with Vit C in it. Gives number 2s a nice tar like appearance. I could probably sell it to council to improve our roads.

    Just for anyone else who might be interested- I went to Chemist Warehouse today and spoke with the pharmacist. It turns out they do supply Bioceuticals In-Natal without Iron!
    my issues are over! Woo hoo!

    Hi Atropos - did the no iron supplement work out for you? Elivit isn't the right one for me either

    I've never taken iron and never had low iron, however I know many women do get low. I always ask them to request a test for this when other blood tests are done just so I can keep an eye on it but its always been fine

    I'm probably annoying as I find myself needing to share this in any thread about iron. But if the supplement is making you constipated then it us a sign that your body is not absorbing the iron and you night need to try iron in a different form. If you do end up needing iron I've found a chelated one works best for me. Others find something like spatone good.

    Just FYI the new (I believe they're newish anyway) natures way pregnancy vitagummies don't contain any iron and are obviously super easy to take!

    I then have to go and separately take my iron supplements as I'm actually anaemic anyway but it sure beats trying to swallow horrendously huge tablets!
