Question: Passing black stool. I started iron and calcium supplements just 2 days ago. is it cause of that? Anything serious?

Question
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.

Dear in pregnancy,black colour stool happens due to consumption of iron tablet, it  is pretty normal to have black stool while consuming iron tablets,it also causes constipation,nausea, stomach upset and vomitting,black colour is due to  unabsorbed iron and it is not a harmful effect
