Iron, which is important for erythropoiesis, may prove to be an important preconception nutrient for women who are trying to conceive. One report noted that women with lower levels of iron could improve their fertility by taking iron supplements.22 Women with insufficient amounts of iron will not be able to respond to the high demand for this nutrient once conception has been achieved. It is important to note that, prior to taking iron, women should be tested to determine the actual (ferritin) and apparent (complete blood count) levels of iron in their bodies. It is also important to be aware if a woman is taking a multivitamin=mineral supplement because many of these contain required amounts of iron and additional supplementation may be contraindicated.
