Hi Doc

I was pregnant 4 months ago. I am so tired every day, even if I sleep the whole day. My doc said that it is Iron problems. I am drinking Iron pills but it doesn't help much.

I am not sure if you are 4 months post partum? In that case the tiredness could be due to a lack of sleep or it could in fact be due to anaemia. Depression should also be considered. It is difficult to give an opinion. Your GP should sort this out by doing some blood tests etc. So my advice is to consult your GP.
