marcia68--Do you have very heavy periods? This is a common cause for females. I had heavy periods and had a transvaginal US and they missed 7 polyps. I decided to have an endometrial ablation and this is when they found the 7 polyps, so it can and was missed. You may want to double check this especially if it has been a year. The scopes will also rule out any internal bleeding. Do you know what your Hgb, Hct and RBC counts are? They tell what stage of anemia you are at. The shortness of breath is usually associated with m ore severe anemia. Sounds like you have been going through this for a while and until the problem is found it will unfortunately continue.

I was also unable to take regular OTC iron supplements because of tummy upset. My GI doc is really good and told me about Poly Iron 150 it is high dose iron which you need right now and it has NO side effects for me. I can even take it on an empty stomach. This is the generic name. You should try other iron if you have no tried many. Or at least a script iron. Mine is scrip or not but located behind the pharmacy counter because it is high dose and you have to ask for it or order it in. It saved me from having IV iron and I am grateful for that. I think that I am as sensitive as you can get. I ended up in the ER over the Ferris Sulfate iron because it is an iron salts based iron, very harsh. Take care and keep us posted.
