Get tested: There are many causes of anemia. You need to be tested to know which one. Also, bruising and dizziness can point to other blood problems along with anemia. See your doc right away to figure out what this is, especially if you're planning to get pregnant.

Anemia?: Have u had blood tests to confirm this diagnosis? Ask doc what type anemia u have & what measures u can take to treat it. Better to get that straightened out before self-administering iron tablets. Prenatal vitamins are preferable. If extra iron is needed, your doc can offer options for treatment. Doc can also determine cause of bruising & dizziness.
