... I would say keep taking iron tablets and a daily multivitamin. You need not only to replace the iron in your blood, but also the iron stores in your body.

... Thank you for your post, Grazianna. The thing that makes me curious is "why now?" I've been taking the same women's daily supplement (which has oodles of Vitamin C, as well as 100% USRDA of iron), have been on the same healthy diet, and had the same work-out regimen for years.
