I have recently been diagnosed as anemic, and have been put on iron pills which I think must be the cause of this rather worrying event! But I thought that iron made your poops darker but not actually BLACK!?!It's not bloody black just black poop...bit concerning...Does anyone else have any thoughts on the matter, is it normal to have this if you take iron?

No need to worry enna - that is exactly what happened to me when I was on iron supplements. My stool turned very black and when I stopped taking them my stool turned back to normal.
