I was recently diagnosed as anemic; Thus I took my first iron supplement today. About 2 hours later, I experienced bleeding in my "nether" regions. It's no where near my time of the month. Actually, I haven't had a period in months. I'm just wondering if this is a common side effect and if anyone else has experienced this.
