AE = adverse event; ALT = alanine aminotransferase; AST = aspartate aminotransferase; FCM = ferric carboxymaltose; HMB = heavy menstrual bleeding; SMC = standard medical care.
All comparisons between the FCM and SMC groups are statistically significant () unless otherwise noted.
Each subject is counted only once per system organ class.
Not statistically significant from the FCM group.
