My hemoglobin count is 9.1. How low can it go before I should worry about it?


Posted by Arriose

I am anemic due to long term menstrual complications (been bleeding for 5 months straight, obgyn can't find any reason for it). My hemoglobin count is 9.1.  My usual number is around 12.4.  Is this a cause for immediate concern (as in ER) or can I wait until I see the doctor again in a week?

Additionally, I have been feeling much weaker lately.  I get out of breath just getting up to get a drink.  I just want to know if I should worry or not.

Thanks!
