hello dear, take natural supplements, like have a piece of jaggery daily, take 2 dates and figs daily, increase ur green vegetables in diet. Iron does cause constipation.
Try alternative medicine like homoeopathy. Increase fibre in diet.Take powder lactifibre in water at night.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic
Constipation is a common complain during pregnancy. Iron tablet mostly causes loose stools but constipation rare. Take plenty of water, liquid diet, orange juice, lemons. You may also use some bulk laxatives by gyane's advise.
Have a Healthful Day and Fruitful Delivery.
