Question: hello doctor! I am pregnant for 8 months. My hb count is 8.6. I take iron tablets daily and always eat plenty of iron food, Even then there is only a small amount of iron in my body. My doctor has told me to get iron injections. I am feeling very afraid of to its bad effects. What can be the reason for this?
Answer: Hello!! dear dont worry,, you can take iron injections, i too had iron tablets becoz i was anemic. Today's advanced iv injections do not have side effects. Sometimes the body does not accept oral iron. You need to increase the amount of iron in your body before delivery, so that you can get rid of the lack of blood during delivery. Go for it.
