Short & long story: Your short period at 6.3 hemoglobin may be a "survival" mechanism for this "long story". When the blood level of red blood cells plunges to this low level, your ability to carry oxygen to the peripheral tissues diminishes greatly.As a result mother nature will try to "conserve" red blood cells lost during your period. I hope you are seeing a md to find the cause and are taking an iron supplement. ...Read more

Hormonally: Really, only birth control pills (or ring or Mirena iucd), can shorten periods. Some say that taking nsaids can shorten and lighten periods, but i don't find that works as a rule.
