Dear ladies, do you know if an endometrial or hemorrhagic ovarian cyst can be the cause of anemia? I don't have heavy periods, so I'm sure my periods are not the cause for my iron to go low. I'm trying to find the reason for my ferritin level being slow to rise.


What have you done in the way of GI tract issues such as digestive and malabsorption, celiac and such? Sorry, I don't remember if you have been over this before. If your problem is not heavy bleeding due to hormones, internal things and thyroid then that is where you should be looking. Perhaps you are not able to absorb iron enough to keep up with what you are losing. I have an ovarian cyst and I don't think that they could possibly bleed enough to give you low numbers and anemia, I have never heard of it myself. I do know that they come and go. Mine has been hanging around for 9 yrs that I know of and it causes no problems, but that is only one 1 1/2 cm. Take care. FLFG :)
