I am finding these boards very helpful! Thank you!

My hemoglobin is 9.4, Ferritin is 4.7, RDW 16.2... Folic acid and B-12 are good (other test are posted in another post)

Here is my question....

Does being iron deficient with anemia mean that I am losing blood somewhere or not? I am very confused about this part. The doctor did do a urine blood test (neg) and a colon stool test (neg) and menstrual cycle is very short and light and has been for at least a year, seems like it was heavier in the past--but it has been awhile. I can't find an exact answer to this and I feel so sick and that makes me get a little worried that something is really wrong.

Thanks again,
