Have you been diagnosed with anemia?? or had this issue before? How about heavy periods? Please call the doc tomorrow and ask what to do. Ruggedman is right about what to do but there has to be a reason why your levels are low. I wouldn't start a treatment with Iron pills before talking to your doc first. Hugs
