Has anyone else done this? How was it? When did you start noticing a difference?
Has anyone gotten IV iron infusions for anemia while pregnant?
As I said, I was really wanting one. They just make me feel so awesome.
i had 25 iv iron infusions back in 98 in the 2 month of my pregnacy with my son, at the time we didnt know i had a tumor in my abdomen that had been causing multi misscarriges, but a hemotoligist got a hold of my records and offered to do these iv iron infustions with risk to my unborn child, which at that point didnt really scare me i wanted my lil boy. it saved my pregnacy my son is 13 now, how ever during the pregnacy his femur bones where not normal size, I went through alot of test for dwarfism, they checked his heart too it turns out that he was born club foot in both feet, it was severe, there was not talk about wether or not the iv iron infusions had caused this. I did carry him breech the entire time and club feet they still dont know the cause. i hope this helps i am sharing the info of the scares to my unborn child not to scare you, my sons feet were corrected by one of the best surgeons in Indpls. Indiana of riley hospital for children. wether or not the iv iron infusions where a cause i honestly never got an answer. my son is a healthy 13 year old and never have i regretted taken those treatment. now they did break them down due to me being pregnant so each day for 5 weeks, they put 100 mg of iron in, so they had to do it slowly. i hope this helps:) good luck:)
