See a doctor!: Anemia could possibly be due to heavy menstrual bleeding. But the fact that you have swollen eyes (? Eyelids), and the fact that you continue to be pale despite ferrous gluconate indicate that you need to see a doctor for evaluation with a thorough history, examination and appropriate ordering of tests.

Anemia: It sounds like you have iron deficiency anemia. You need to make sure you boost your dietary iron intake and work with your primary care to get better. When you don't feel good, it is also hard to look in the mirror and "look good." don't get discouraged. Focus your energy on getting better and healthier!
