Iron Pills and Spotting

 So, I'm anemic.  Which REALLY pisses me off (but that's another story).  Anyway, I've been taking 300mg of Ferrous Sulphate (iron pills) for the past 6 months or so.  Went to the doctor last week and found out my iron is really low, so I've had to double the amount of iron I'm taking.  In addition to the inevitable constipation, I've also had some spotting.  Enough spotting that it stained my underwear.  My period was about two weeks ago, so I think I'm ovulating right now.  Either way, I'm not sure I've ever really spotted and certainly not this much.  Could it be because of the iron?  I only started doubling the dose on Monday.  It's the only thing I'm doing differently.  I'm a virgin, no sexual activity at all, and not on birth control.  Is there any other reason I could be spotting?  When I googled it all it came up with was pregnancy, but I'm definitely not pregnant, so yeah... 

Any ideas?
