For how long should we take iron and calcium supplements post delivery?

Good evening, minimum 3 months

Thank you for answering Dr. Rahul. Is there a maximum limit too?

Not really. depends on the mothers physical health and reserves and the doctor.

Got it. Thank you once again.

pleasure and all the best

You only need supplements if you have a deficiency. an overload of suppliments can cause problems. eat well and u don't need supplements. please get your blood checked before taking these pills, many do not contain what they say they do. kidney disease is a big problem in india because people take too many unnecessary pills.

Sounds wise. I shall do that soon. It's been 6 months am taking iron and calcium pills. I guess, it's high time I should visit a doctor. Thank you so much ☺
