Hi,
I think you should consult your doctor before taking any multivitamis. And if you are taking proper diet, then there is no need to take Multivitamins.

Don't take a multivitamin that includes iron. Multivitamins that include iron do it for one reason and that is to make it look appealing to woman like yourself. When iron is added to a multivitamin it reduces the absorbability of the other ingredients. That's how I understand it. Take iron all by itself. I use a multi from a company called Thropp's Nutrition and I haven't been able to find one that beats it and I always shop around for quality stuff on the net. Good luck
