my question is do iron tablets interfere with the period cycle? i just started on them a week ago and i am on the contraceptive pill, and i started getting my period when i shouldn't have.. which was strange becuase it never comes before the sugar tablets. would just like to know if it interferes with the period or contraceptive cycle?
