Iron supplements and bowel movements



Recommended Posts

So....

I started taking Iron supplements 3-4 days ago.

And now, sorry to gross you out, but my bowel momvents have changed. Poo is all green like brokkoli (it has been for the most part light brown/orangeish since surgery) and smells really, really...I wouldn't say bad, but you can definitly smell that is not a normal odor.

WTF. Can someone tell if this is like normal for an adjustment period or something like that?

Yes, that is normal for Iron. It will change the color of your poop. I am not currently taking any because it caused me constipation.
