  • your iron level is supposed to be 12! Mine is around 10 and I'm on the depo shot and if it goes below ten they will not let me have my shot. That sounds like anemia to me, I've been anemic for a long time. and when you're anemic you bruise VERY VERY easily, I have bruises and NO idea where they came from. You need to see a doctor and get on iron pills and please dont go that long without eating I know how that feels and it is not fun. Especially in summer, being anemic really takes a toll on your body with the heat. Idk why they didn't tell you to see a doctor at wic, mine do if its like at 11!

  • if it's your iron level is 3 that is pretty low. I had chest and joint pain, looked pale, was very tired, memory problems and mine was at 8.
