How Long Does It Take For Iron Tablets to Leave Your System?
 
I'm having some blood tests done soon for a few things including iron. I've been taking iron supplements for a few weeks, and though they don't seem to be doing much I want a "true" reading to know if I need to take them. How long should I wait? :)

Unless you are having a period or some other blood loss the they won't "leave" your system.

If you mean you don't want to have a blood test after taking the tablets then if you take your pills in the morning have the test in the morning before taking them.
