Go to see your MD: You have iron deficiency- despites taking the oral iron. How do you take it? If you only take once a day- then increase to 3x/day.

Increase intake of food that rich in iron like spinach, beets, liver etc. See-www.Ironrichfood.Org. If oral iron doesn't not help- then IV iron is needed. ...Read more

Have u been checked?: Abdominal discomfort can be caused by lots of things & may indeed originate outside the GI tract. Further evaluation is in order before anyone can answer "what to do." Your doctor will want to re-examine you as well as know the quality, timing, duration, exact location & associations (eating, position, activity, stooling, urinating). Best 1st check a home pregnancy test at this point for clarity. ...Read more

Most likely, normal: Rule out pregnancy, of course. My own take on this is that, particularly with heavy menses, there is notable amount of retrograde menstrual flow (back flow of menstrual effluent) through the fallopian tubes into the abdominal cavity. This could serve to irritate the peritoneal lining (eliciting pain, bloating, etc..) as well as nearby bowel; leading to some of the possible GI symptoms described. ...Read more
