Hi Anon

Thanks for your post.

It doesn't sound like you have long bleeding because you are anemic, but you are anemic because you have long bleeding.

Anemia can be serious - read more here: http://www.empowher.com/anemia/content/anemia-overview

You need to discuss with your doctor why your periods are irregular and it's a good idea to get blood tests to see why. In addition, you might want to think about taking iron  supplements and also talk to her about trying birth control which can help with your heavy bleeding. 

Best,

Susan
