welcome to HealthcareMagic
The motions are black when they contain iron or blood.You are having normal motion & not loose or diarrhoea so in your case is because of the Iron tablet you are getting black stools.Just in case if you want to satisfy yourself with a second opinion you can ask your doctor.No need to worry as you don't have symptom of any problem;it is surely because of Iron tablets.
