  • not that I have heard of. But iron will. My prenatal vitamins made me VERY constipated. I switched to a no-iron one and that made all the difference!

  • No. but if your vitamin has extra iron, gluten, dairy, soy... so many additives may be causing it. Also, some vitamins are pressed with strange fillers like coal tar that can back you up. Switch to a natural whole food based vitamin.
