Been on cont birth control year round for past year and half. I have above normal iron (iron binding capacity). Other iron levels normal. Cold it be from the pill continuous. Don't eat red meat.

Could be from pill : Estrogens can increase the proteins that bind iron and this is harmless. Iron Saturation is the number you want to look at, and is calculated by dividing (iron) by (total iron binding capacity). If your saturation is between 20 and 40 (or the normal for your lab), you are fine. ...Read more
