Can being anemic cause your periods to stop or be late?

I had a routine blood lab ran a few weeks ago, the doctor called me back and told me i was anemic and to take iron pills. i have normal periods (3-4days not heavy at all). But this month i havent had my period. Im not on any type of birthcontorl unless you call the pull out method b/c ... I have taken a pregnancy test and it was negative. i have had a few symptoms but those symptoms are also symptoms of being anemic so its kinda confusing. SO has anyone else been anemic and not gotten thier periods or had them delayed?
