Unlikely related: The abortion pill should not have any effects on your periods after the fact. You may want to see an ob/gyn about your symptoms with your periods to see if there isn't anything else going on. It may be worthwhile to also start some form of birth control to better control your periods or even eliminate them, which would be safe as well. Feel free to consult me about this. ...Read more

If some one has adequate iron stores then periods per se should not cause low iron levels. But anemia or iron deficiency is what I suspect here. Iron supplementation may be needed. ...Read more
