I had a hysterectomy done last week and I'm anemic. I have very little energy. How soon will taking iron vitamins start to work?

Anemia. Iron deficiency anemia is the #1 anemia in women. Iron three times a day is need while anemic and for 3 months after hemoglobin is back to normal, then take it once a day. Take a stool softener , iron cause sconstipation. Md usually will check CBC in 1-2 weeks with reticulocyte count, your hg should be going up. So iron should start working quick. If feeling too weak, call your doctor.
