If it is working well for you, you can then use this pill continuously to space periods. ...Read more

I just got my blood work back and my iron level was 649. I still have a regular period, don't take any meds and my iron low before. What's wrong with?

I just got my blood work back and my iron level was 649. I still have a regular period, don't take any meds and my iron low before. What's wrong with?

Could be error: That iron level is very very high...Especially in light of being low before. There are several components of the iron-work-up, thus it is possible that this is actually not the iron level but other protein i.e. Transferrin (200-400) and ferritin (30-400) depending on specific lab. Ferritin can vary greatly, easily over 1000 with acute illness etc...
So, check with your doc to confirm.
Good luck. ...Read more

It says to not take more than 1 glycerin suppository in 24 hr. Period. I accidently took two back to back just now. Should I go to er?
