    Unhappy Anaemia

    Hi any advice greatly appreciated.
    I have been feeling pretty poorly for well over the last 2-3 months. I have been to the gp on many occasions and had many tests, including thyroid etc. today the gp rang to say the problem was my hb level was 9 and my ferritin level was undetectable. He has left me a prescription out of folic acid 5mg for once a day and wants to repeat the bloods in 3 months.
    I am relieved it's something so simple, disappointed it took them so long to diagnose but now frightened as I don't understand!!!!
    - why has this happened now?
    - is 5mg going to be enough?
    -why wait 3 months what if the iron doesn't start to store up?

    Nb im 44 years old going through the menopause following a hysterectomy at the age of 28.
    Please help
