Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

Obimet sr is a medication normally used in diabetics but it can also be used to reduce insulin resistance in women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (common cause of difficulty conceiving).

When obimet sr is used in polycystic ovarian syndrome, it improves fertility. It would not cause black stool.

Fertisure is also used to improve the chance of conception. The iron content could cause the black colour that you are seeing.

I hope this helps
