how long to take iron?

how long are you supposed to take iron supplements for after an anemia diagnosis? My level was under 10 while I was pregnant, and that's when I started taking iron (about 14-15 months ago). I'm just curious because on my most recent CBC it showed that I'm in the normal range (it was 13.9, with normal starting at 11.8).

Re: how long to take iron?

I would think 14 months would be plenty. Did your doctor say anything about your iron stores? They should tell you whether you need to keep taking them or not.
