90 days +: It takes 90 days for the body to manufacture one mature red blood cell from the bone marrow and get it into circulation. If your blood loss was very severe, it may take longer and oral daily iron supplementation is essential.

Hemoglobin: When your hemoglobin level reaches higher than 8 gm/dL the symptoms from anemia will go away. I trust that you are taking iron and multivitamin supplements to help your body make hemoglobin, in case you are iron deficient.
