Hi Pixie,
My hb always seems to hold out pretty well, but my ferritin levels are low (<3). Like yourself mine is caused by heavy periods.
I was undiagnoised for a lot of years, as they only ever tested my hb levels and not my ferritin (your bodies actual iron stores), so i gradually worsened to the point of needing iron infusions.
Could I be nosy and ask what proceedure your having done?
I do believe that my low ferritin levels have caused me a lot of symptoms ie, fatigue, anxiety, breathlessness etc, so maybe you should enquire as to what your levels are.
Good Luck
