To be precise from my last post my ferratin was that low number which refers also in general to iron. He wants me to have a transfusion, as iron injections have not worked nor have the pills. But I really just dont like the idea of having another persona blood in my body. Id rather wait it out. My iron levels are certainly NOT by any medical definition as you put it fine lol!
I'm booked in for an iron transfusion at the end of the month. I've had one before and I'm hoping it will give me some energy back.

When I was first tested at 6 weeks my iron levels were 68, and at 12 weeks down to 42... I was told it's not a worry until it is below 30....however I have started taking an iron supplement as doc said it certainly wouldn't hurt will be interested to see levels again next time I'm now 22 weeks.
Thanks for all this info. Does anyone know how quickly I can increase my iron level naturally. I don't want to take tablets.
