Dr/gyn, will taking iron pill make existing big fibroids become even larger?

In brief: No

Large fibroids often cause heavy bleeding and anemia due to iron deficiency.
Once this occurs, it is hard to take enough iron in a normal diet to make up for it. The supplements help to overcome this.

In brief: No

Iron helps anemia or low blood caused by fibroids.
It doesn't cause fibroids to grow any faster than they normally grow.
