you have almost lost half of your blood acutely, in this situation Dr's recommend blood transfusion although it has some inherent risks but in cases of emergency one has to take some risk to avoid any serious complication, but as a person you have your rights u may refuse transfusion if u don't want provided u understand the consequences. In that case your Dr, will give you other options like iron injectios or rarely some hormones to increase your Hb.
