    Hi it is possible you have uterine fibroids. They cause long term bleeding. Try to get in for a transvaginal ultrasound. They can do that through bleeding. Also you need to start taking iron pills to boost your hemoglobin back up. You're becoming anemic from the long term bleeding. Good luck keep us updated
