Iron deficiency- anaemia
Hi Doc

I have been diagonised of iron deficiency anaemia two months ago and am on a treatment of Ferrimed for 3 months. I was told that while i am using this treatment my complexion will be darker. I'm on my third month and i am getting very dark its not even funny. Will i go back to my complexion after i finished the treatment?

The darkening of your complexion is more likely to be due to the pregnancy than the iron tablets.
Some pigmentation may remain after the pregnancy.
