how old are you?

are you taking iron? or your anemia treated?

your light period could be because of your anemia.

I take an iron supplement daily as well as a daily vitimin. I have never had this happen before, I am 23 years old.
Expert:  Dr David replied 2 months ago.

you should see your doctor and get blood test to check on your anemia.

you could still be anemic. which could change the nature of your period.
