You may: ER is not likely to address the long term issue of excessive menstrual bleeding. If you are so anemic that you may require blood transfusion, then do to the ER, otherwise you need to see your doctor. Take oral iron supplement and multivitamins to restore the iron lost in blood.

Yes: Yes you should. Given your anemia and heavy bleeding you need to go to an ER that has OB/GYN on duty for evaluation and treatment. Good luck.
