Constant bleeding since months. Anemia, thyroid ruled out. What are the chances of developing anemia?

I have been bleeding 24 hours per day for the past 5 months. I did go to my gyn doctor and they took my blood to check my blood count and thyroid . Nearly 2 years ago, I bled every day all day long for 10 months straight and did not have anemia . What are the chances I may develop anemia? I am turning 39 at the end of this month.

Dear Ma'm, Anemia is very common with heavy menstrual bleeding, but it can be avoided by good nutrition, and iron supplements. But even if you do not develop anemia, persistent bleeding is still not something you should have. Please see your gynecologist at the earliest. Regards!
