Pregnancy Worries
Hi doctor, am 38 weeks pregnant with natural pregnancy. Am pure vegetarian. Am on iron & calcium supplements.Sometimes I used to get constipation for which I am taking DUPHALAC SYRUP 15 ml once in night only. After taking SYRUP also I would pass Black stool only once in a day. Am having black stool from many days. Doctor says it's due to iron supplements. From past two days without taking DUPHALAC am passing normal stool but 2-3 times in a day. Also am getting yellow stools & not black. Is it anything to be worried.. am worried due to color of the stool n passing 2-3 times in a day. Pls suggest

Hello.... Don't worry about color of stool if it's normal pale yellow color stool.. It's natural color of stool because of Iron intake you had constipation and once you get adjust to iron tablets you won't get constipated, drink lot of water, have fiber containing food....
