Depends: There are a number of conditions leading to anemia. You have to discuss with your primary care doctor.

Diagnosis first: With the help of your physician, you need to discover the reasons for anemia before appropriate treatment can be provided. There are multiple types and causes of anemia. Iron deficiency is a very common type of anemia, and can come from blood loss. If not corrected, it would continue and worsen. I see you're already taking iron; you can also eat red meat, eggs with yolks, ; leafy green veggies.

If your anemia : Is iron deficiency, which is the most common type in women of your age group, take your iron supplement. Taking it with vitamin c will help absorption.

Yes: But not the only cause. The loss of blood witth menstruation causes an obligate loss of iron. Iron deficiancy results in a specific type of anemia. Tthere are other vitamin deciencies and medical issues that cause anemia as well. A few simple blood tests can sort this out. See your physician.

B12 Deficiency: There are several things that happen with a B12 deficiency including anemia, neuropathies, and non-soecific neurological affects such as fatigue, depression, irritability, and psychosis. Clinically, patients are diagnosed with B12 deficiency through anemia first but with current testing practices many patients are discovered to have low levels without ever being anemic.

Is there a way to treat anaemia that we can do at home?

Cause of anemia: First the cause of the anemia needs to be determined by your physician. Some anemias are due to lack of vitamins or iron and can be treated with supplements. But there are many other common causes of anemia that need specific therapies that are not 'home remedies.'.
