GG--I am so sorry that you are going through all this and I know it can be really difficult. If it makes you feel unsafe or scared then you may want to go to the ER. I can share with you some of my experience that I went through. When I was going to have surgery for heavy bleeding they wanted me to have my period right before surgery to achieve the best results. So...I was on iron 2X daily 300mgs at that time, had a period and they tested (me before and after) my Hgb that is. Well, the results were that I actually went up 1/10 of a point, I know that's not much, but my point is that I did not drop as I thought I would have, I broke even so to speak. Perhaps with iron IM's you will be okay until you can see your doctor tomorrow. I experienced the same horrible feeling of having a period with anemia, I was really scared to have periods at this time because my head would feel so strange and have leg weakness and blurred vision in one eye. I really thought that I had MS. Really crazy things can come out of it. If you have not already gone to the ER, I would definitely go into the doctor's tomorrow morning first thing and ask for a stat HGB and an iron IM pronto. That's really all that you need to do at this point (if your Hgb has not dropped) I would think. My doctors always did this for me if I was feeling bad. Unless your Hgb has not been checked in a while and is way too low, only you know this. When I was bad off they checked me weekly and then bi-weekly and finally monthly and 3 months. You are also going to have to do something about the bleeding you cannot keep having break throughs if they are lowering your values this much. You may not be able to replace enough iron and hold onto it to raise your Hgb if it continues. Can you see your GYN to possibly try something else that may work better for you. It's not enought to build Hgb and lower it, that can become another cycle. Best of luck to you. Keep us posted! FLFLOWERGIRL:)
