I have had two children, both by cesarean. First birth very difficult, leading to hemorrhaging and a blood transfusion. Resulted in first Low Iron Anemia.
Experienced a lot of stress in 2004 which resulted in a two year period, and my second episode of low iron anemia. I was prescribed Mirena IUD, which controlled the periods to not having one for almost five years. 2011 the Mirena was taken out and I choose to not have another on put in as I did not like the experience. I have been pretty regular since, up until this year where I have been experiencing some mild perimenopausal symptoms. Just recently, my periods are getting worse, and constant again.
