Hi,
Unless you don't have any problems like that of heavy bleeding , there is as such no indication of use of iron tablets at your age. For normal individuals get enough iron from vegetables and fruits especially apple. You can get your complete count then and if you are anemic for some reason. Only if you have iron deficiency anemia, should you be using iron tablets.
However you can continue with your Calcium tablets if you don't use enough of dairy products such as milk. Women after menopause are naturally prone to have weak bones. This is the time where you might want to strengthen your bones by doing exercise along with adequate intake of calcium. Also don't forget to get the sunshine vitamin, Vit D by getting some exposure in the sun daily
