As long as the bleeding has been found and stopped; but I really don't see it happening in 3 months. There is a test for iron storage and you are correct, it is the ferritin test. This is the number that takes quite a long time to raise. Ferritin is one of the causes for so many ill side effects with being low on iron. Most people don't even report feeling well till their ferritin reaches the 50's -- 70's.

I had a uterine ablation on Monday and have been taking heavy doses of iron for 8 months, my OB told me I can plan on taking iron for at least another year. So for me it will be about 2 years of taking iron. Eeek. My ferritin started at a 2 and is now a 33. It's a long road.

I guess it just depends on you. How well you are absorbing, the route that you are taking. Etc.
