    Question started iron pills... my period is now late...

    Hello everyone...

    I started iron pills in the beginning of March. (dx with anemia)
    My period was due in the last week of that month.
    Unfortunately, I did not have my period.
    Its now been 2 months since starting iron pills and no period.
    Is this a normal reaction?

    It is normal when you are very anemic, but from what you say, you think it's the medication that's causing it. Have you mentioned this to your doctor?
