Hi Kokomo and thanks. I was checked many years ago and had anemia. I can not remember my hemoglobin count. But I can say that at that time I discovered I had a huge uterine fibroid which was causing me very heavy periods. After I had the fibroids removed in 1996, I got pregnant and did not crave anymore until this year (2008) about two months ago. I have been having very, very heavy periods too, for the last 4-5 months. Much heavier than usual. I am making the connection.
I have been loosing a lot of blood on my period. I have been flooding out overnight pads and also wearing these big things during the day and still flooding them out. When I stand I can feel a rush of blood spilling into my pad. I need to get to my OB-GYN to find out why I am loosing so much blood. I am a very youthful 45 year old; who looks and feels like a 28-30 year old (or so I am told). Maybe I need to look a pre-menopausal symptoms and blood loss. Eureka!!! I believe this is the correlation to my ice craving.
