  • Are you taking them for anemia that causes you to bleed heavily?

  • In my case it was the other way around, well sort of. lol I had been feeling very tired with no energy, went to my Dr and she drew my blood and found that I was anemic due to my heavy periods. I am now taking iron pills and have not found that it affects my period.

  • Your friend should see a doctor then. I used to take iron supplements after I had my kids because I was borderline anemic but eventually I had to go off of them because I had too much iron in my system but it never stopped my menstrual cycle or affected it in a way.

  • No, but they will give you energy, and strength. You might get constipated though. Drink juice. =)
