Serum Iron Profile Reticulocyte counts B12 & Folic Acid Levels Admit for further evaluation Gynaecologist advise for the likely cause..

Best Parentral iron are Ferric carboxymaltose 500mg vials Unaffordable by most of patients Iron sucrose is also an alternative but Iron should be substituted if Hemoglobin is above 7grams/dl...

Evaluation of microcytic hypochromic anemia with Serum iron, serum ferritin, serum transferrin,TIBC, Stool for occult blood, ova,cyst. Rx > Albendazole 1hs, ferrous sulfate orally, blood transfusion preferably wth packed RBC cells.

Thank you sir

Absolutely agree with Dr. Javaid Iqbal khan,, perfect approach and management

This is iron deficiency anemia unless proved otherwise This is unlikely to be nutritional, so a detailed menstrual history should be taken. A von willebrand disease can present with iron deficiency anemia, hook worm is another possibility, GI occult loss should be excluded, since there is no other history a malabsorption is unlikely, otherwise celiac disease is a differential. The need for blood transfusion is debatable, I shall treat with oral iron and monitor the response
