Hi, I am a 19 year old female who has been suffering from heavy/irregular periods since the age of 14/15. My most recent period started early august 2018 and finished end of december. The bleeding was non stop so when I was booked in for a blood test I assumed that my iron levels would be low. However the results showed that my iron levels were fine and that I had normal levels of it stored in my body.
To make things simpler, here are the results from my CBC (btw my doctor didn't write down my RBC for me but they were normal):
Platelet count= 370
The doctor I spoke to says that I am anaemic due to low haemoglobin but she wants me to have further blood tests because she believes that iron deficiency is not the cause. However I would've thought that the huge loss of blood would've been a key factor so I am very confused. My family have no history of having any blood disorders such as Thessalamia and Sickle cell etc. Is there anything I can do to raise my haemoglobin? I have been feeling exhausted, unable to complete minor excersises, low mood, coldness etc. So does anyone have any suggestions on what could be the cause?
