Yes: You could become anemic with this much blood loss during your monthly cycle. It is not uncommon to arrive at this much menstration slowly over time. After a visit and exam with your gyn doctor, you might have several options to get your cycle back to normal. There are medications, diagnostic ultrasounds and outpatient, same day interventions that could be helpful to you.
