Normal = >11.5 to 15: But if menstruating - depending on when blood drawn - can dip below 11 - as long as not actively bleeding - should return to normal with regular dietary intake - occasionally will need extra iron - especially if other issues - such as fibroids ...

Varies with altitude (at higher altitudes a higher hemoglobin value is expected).

See below: Normal range is 12-15 g/dL, with some leeway. At your age you are losing blood during menstruation and it would be prudent to take oral iron and multivitamin supplements to maintain normal hemoglobin. For nutrition info visit this site: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/. Get HPV vaccine
