Anemia: That's a low hemoglobin and although you are young and likely will continue to make hemoglobin/red blood cells, you should consider (1) getting tested for any other causes of anemia (2) start taking iron (3) consider birth control pills to decrease the amount of bleeding you have with each period. Hope that helps. Good luck.
