I am 5 week pregnant. Doctor prescribe some iron tablet but after having it my stool is watery. Is this normal?

Yes very normal. Do discuss it with your doctor when you visit her next

Usually people are prescribed to take iron tablets from 3rd month...... N it's not normal

Before conceive I used to take iron tablets.. after that doctor asked me to stop for 3months..and in 4th month started again

Doctor said not to use iron capsules in 1st trimester

Hey dear please speak to your doctor ...also get a hemoglobin check ...usually doctors prescribe after 3 Rd month but might be some reason why it's prescribed now..
Will get an expert to help you...Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa; Please help ..

Is it iron capsule or folic acid tabs??

She; prescribed two tablet one is Macfolate and another one is Duphaston

Yes it is folic acid and progesterone.. dont worry.. continue those medicines

Watery stools may be a stomach bug or just seasonal loose bowels
