One with iron: A multiple vitamin a day with food and one that contains iron would be beneficial in a menstruating 15 year old provided there are not iron related illnesses in the patient or the family (hemochromatosis).

They rarely eat a balanced meal but do have a balanced week.They often feed well only 4-5 days a month. If you want to buy vitamins, buy them, but recognize that you're likely just creating expensive urine. ...Read more
