No studies: Within the science of medicine, I am not aware of any studies that would have examined whether grape juice is good for the vagina. Having said that chemicals that give food certain tastes and smells are excreted in body glands, some of which happen to be located in the vagina.

Drank grape juice with iron pill. What's gonna happen?? Will I be sick? I didn't have water!!

Interactions: I would have thought that the bit of vitamin c in grape juice would have helped you absorb the iron better, but actually the Phenols in Red or Dark grape juice prevent the absorption of iron. So you will absorb less iron with dark grape juice than with water, but it shouldn't make you sick. ...Read more

Took iron pill with grape juice not grapefruit, Welch's grape juice. Idk if that's bad or not. I drank water and ate afterwards.

Ok: It may actually be helpful to take iron with juices rich in vitamin C because iron is more easily absorbed when taken with vitamin C. Ascorbic acid is the strongest iron inhancer, reducing ferric iron to ferrous iron.
Avoid iron inhibitors like tannins in tea, red wine and phytates in nuts, seeds, grains and cereal. They prevent non heme iron from being absorbed ...Read more

I believe you can drink grape juice on Coumadin, (warfarin) but is it safe to drink Welches 100% purple grape juice?

Grape juice: 100% purple grape juice should be just fine with coumadin (warfarin). The issue is how much vitamin K is in there, and it is fairly low.
