Thanks for your question.
There are various causes for the iron deficiency anemia that you are having. This could be nutritional due to inadequate iron intake, or due to blood loss. If your doctor is suspecting that this is due to blood loss then further testing is required. There may be microscopic bleeding in the stools which can be detected by tests and this is not seen visually by the naked eye.
