Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The condition of a woman during pregnancy really needs to be considered, because in addition to meeting her nutritional needs, she also has to bear the development of the fetus in her womb. One of the conditions that should be paid attention to is the condition of lack of blood or anemia in pregnancy. If this condition is continued there is a risk of:
Preterm labor Low birth weight in infants. Postpartum depression in the mother. Death
It should be noted, however, that in pregnant women, the hemoglobin (Hb) standard for anemia is ultimately different in women who are not pregnant. Pregnant women have the lowest Hb limit of 10.5 g / dL before it is called anemia. In your case, an Hb of 8.4 g / dL is already categorized as anemia, but for treatment it has certain stages, where transfusions are usually given when the Hb reaches <7 g / dL, and before reaching that stage, oral / oral treatment is sought first because transfusion is also not without risks.
Regarding bowel movements that feel hard and fresh blood comes out as well as lumps, this condition can actually be caused by a variety of things, one possibility is hemorrhoids / hemorrhoids. But to be sure, as well as to find out whether this is really triggered by the drug you are taking or not, we suggest that you check your condition directly with your obstetrician, so that your doctor can choose the treatment that is most appropriate for you.
Meanwhile, our advice is to get plenty of rest, consume more fruit, and especially vegetables and water. Avoid being in the toilet too long, and don't hold your bowels. Consume fish, red meat, chicken, eggs, nuts and seeds to increase your iron intake, as well as routine control to the doctor. We wish you a smooth pregnancy and childbirth.
