If you have low levels of iron or iron deficiency anemia supplemental iron should be considered while working with your health care practitioner.
Teen girls and women with heavy menstrual cycles face a higher risk of low iron levels, as do pregnant women. Also, if you don’t eat a balanced diet rich in foods containing iron or take iron-depleting medications, you might need an iron-containing supplement.
Consulting with a health care practitioner about your blood iron levels is an important first step in understanding if you need to supplement with it.
