hi Monika ! In addition what Puloma has mentioned please keep a gap of 8 to 10 hours between iron and Calcium tablets as calcium hinders iron absorption. so ur body won't be able to absorb complete iron as is the requirements. instead take vitamin C rich food which boost iron absorption ..

Hi Monika, this may be due to iron intake. Just have lots of fluids including water and juices. And once let your doctor know about this.
