Question: Black or clay colour stool is normal while taking folic acid and calcium tabkets

1 Answers
Answer: Hi dear, Black stool in pregnancy is mostly due to iron supplement.very rarely it could.be due to internal bleeding.but that is extreme rare case.while taking iron supplements,body cannot absorb all the iron,so it comes out of body through motion,thereby giving it black colour.they are harmless and nothing to be worried about.unless you have any other issue related to extreme constipation,then not to worry.once you stop iron supplements,stool color would come back to normal.
