It also brought on a hemorrhagic period the next day which lasted heavy for three days. I'm one month on and just started another heavy clotting period. Is this a side effect? ## I have just had a super heavy period, 1 week after a ferinject.

This infusion may also cause nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and joint/muscle aches. Are you on any other medications?
