Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there, This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist. I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Did you check for any GI bleeding with stool occult blood test or guaiac?
besides heavy period, GI bleeding is the common cause.
Another possibility is chronic iron deficiency.
Given the lack of significant symptoms that is moe likely.
Iron deficient diet or absorption problem due to the inflammatory bowel disease, or chronic heavy periods are such examples.
Usually Hgb above 6 in that case should be ok.
Blood transfusion is not required Above Hgb 7 or in the absence of significant hemofynamic instability.
So, you may wait till Monday.
