    Hi ladies, I'll apologise now for the TMI, but..

    Can iron tablets turn your poop green? :eh:

    I've just been to the loo, and had a very soft movement, and it was green?!
    Normally iron tablets make it hard to go, so I'm very confused.

    I don't think its anything I've eaten.
    Yesterday I had: Banana, Branflakes, Turkey & Coleslaw Sandwich, Milky Bar & Toast.
    Today I had: Breakfast Bar, Ham & Cheese Sandwich, Banana, Chicken Pita Breads & Salad.

    I've not ate anything strange/different to normal.

    Any ideas??

    Don't wana ring delivery at this time for something like this lol.

    See I've been on them a while and normally..
    I find it hard to pass, and its very hard/dark (Almost black)
    So I've also been given lactalose to help pass poop.

    So now I'm confused? Lol x

    I've had to take 2 a day from really early on, cause they weren't sure if I was anemic or had thalassemia (a blood condition) And they've done my bloods regular all the way through, but my iron levels seem to stay the same? (Low) x
