Hello Miss Bowman;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The haemoglobin of 7.2 is very low as normal should be between 12-15 so you need to start on medicines to increase the haemoglobin.Also since you have very heavy periods the haemoglobin will reduce further so please visit your doctor and get examined and he/she will prescribe the necessary medicine or injections to control the excess bleeding as well as increase the blood.
