[QUOTE=jcjwillis;2981627]I think you are right about the blood test, if you have heavy periods it can show up that you are anemic or at least lower your blood counts.
Have you had anemia symptoms at other times besides with your periods?

Hope this helps![/QUOTE]

Yes, I had anemia show up starting last July. With some iron supplementation, I have gotten the anemia to go away, but my ferritin counts are still low.

During my blood tests last month, I was stable with the hemoglobin, but my ferritin did not rise. I tried some new things this month (a little extra iron and cutting back on my Prilosec) so I am very anxious to see if the changes made any increase in my lab values. But I don't want some bleeding from my period to mess it all up.

So, I guess I'll cancel. My co-worker just told me that it doesn't take a whole lot of bleeding to affect the blood counts.
