Thanks for posting on XXXXXXX

According to your hemoglobin reading of 11.8 I do not think you should be worried at all as values in women of more than 11 can be considered normal and I will advice iron supplement inly in case you are pregnant or planning to get pregnant. LIVOGEN FC-captab contains ferrous fumarate 152 mg, folic acid 1500 mcg which is sufficient enough to maintain a single daily dose for about 1month then recontrol. The cause of the anemia could also be identified by your doctor. The cause may likely be heavy or prolonged menses or if that is not the case then other investigations should be done to identify the cause.

Best wishes and wish you the best.
