I bleed so much and have never been found to be Anemic, even when I felt for sure I was. My sed rate is always 60 or so since I started asking about it and both doctors did not seem concerned about it. When I went to the ER they gave me antibiotics cause they said my blood showed signs of infection but I didn't have one I knew of, just a bad flare-up. I find the opposite, that I feel awful and my doctor say everything's fine.
