Blood test: Eating ice in women is often associated with iron deficiency anemia. You may see your doctor for a blood test. You could take oral iron supplement available over the counter. If you intend to be pregnant, take pre-natal vitamins. If you do not want to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time.
