Question: meri doctor ne abhi tak iron and calcium supplements khane ko nh diya bs folic acid leti hu or progesterone tablets....maine puchha to unhone bola after 3 month u have to take calcium and iron supplements ...is it ok
Answer: Yes it's right.
Calcium supplement can be started @ 500 mg after 3 months and at 1000 mg per day after 4 months. Continue to have plenty of milk and curd anyway.
Iron supplement can be started after 20 weeks (earlier if you are anaemic).
Continue to have lean grilled chicken, fish and green leafy vegetables to get iron from diet as well.
And yes, take iron and calcium at different times in the day. Don't have iron when you have just had milk or curd. It will not get properly absorbed.
