Yes, you probably need iron again.

It sounds as if your doctor didn't really explain things to you.

It is not "normal" to be iron deficient with anemia. The doctor should always look for a cause of the anemia. You can't just take iron for a few months and think that you've fixed it. It doesn't work that way. Whatever the disease process is that caused the deficiency is still there. When you stop the iron, it will start all over again.

Do you have any idea why you are anemic? Do you have heavy periods? Could you have some internal bleeding that you don't know about? These are important questions.

As for the iron, I would definitely take it. Not only are you anemic, your iron stores are obviously totally depleted.

I would probably get a new bottle of iron. It probably still has some potency left to it, but why would you want to take something that might be degrading?
