For pregnant women with anemia, diet plays an important role. But it is widely believed that you need to eat lots of vegetables and fruits that contain iron (we mean apples, carrots, pomegranates). This is a misconception, because the emphasis in the diet for anemia should be made on meat products. Of meat absorbed 6% of iron, while from plant foods only 0, 2%. And the index of absorption of iron from drugs is 30-40%.

For the treatment of anemia, the dose of gyno-tardyferon is 2 tablets.

If you feel these side effects after prescription, it is worth consulting with a doctor, picking up another drug to treat anemia. Modern pharmaceuticals have a wide range of similar drugs for the prevention and treatment of iron deficiency in pregnant women.
