It takes a long time for haemoglobin to rise even after orofer injections. Rise is app 0.5 gm every week. Overloading with iron is not going to change that. Just relax and let it rise on its own

Hi, how many weeks she is pregnant?  If in term stage, means after 36wk then need to take one or 2 more as the hb will increase in another week or so  , as you already have 5 inj.if less wks , no need mostly. You can take iron cap twice. And also do haemoglobin electrophoresis if not done.
