Hi cindy;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The green color of stools if it is loose motions and with pain in abdomen then it will be due to infection and if it is not painful and you just pass greenish or blackish stools once in a day then it can be if you are taking iron tablets to increase haemoglobin ;if it is so then it is normal.
If you have loose motions then you should get treated immediately because diarrhoea can cause to land you up in pre-term labour which is not good for yur baby.Consult your doctor for immediate treatment.
Take care

hi. i m a 22 year old female, 5 1 and 142 pounds.I have a history of hypothyroidism and i have been off my meds for a while (my doctor wanted to monitor me without the meds). For the past 4-5 days i have been passing green stool. I do not have diarrhea, or abdominal cramps. I have sticking to my usual diet which has never caused me to pass green stool before. Should I be worried?
