I can't seem to keep my ferritin up! It's so frustrating to see my labs bounce around between 25 and 35 and never get any higher. The problem is I have heavy menstrual loss each month. I can't get on any sort of birth control because I'm trying to get pregnant, and I have already had surgery to see if I had any fibroids or endometriosis causing the problem. It didn't help. I've always been this way since I started having my period as a young teenager. I'm looking for advice on how to get my iron stores up. I take the supplements but need breaks from the constant stomach issues they cause. I guess I don't qualify for a transfusion but I know my ferritin needs to be at 70 minimum! How can I get there?!
