    When should I go off iron?

    I gave been taking iron for two years now due yo heavy bleeding from Fibroids. I had surgery to remove the fibroids in Jan 2013. My numbers are nice Hemoglobin 13.5 and Ferritin is 20. Should I stay on the iron and keep building up my iron storage?

    I think you should stay on iron to build up storage if you don't have bad side effects from your iron. I read that women should ideally have 50+ ferritin for optimal health. 20 is still very low, though your hemoglobin looks awesome.
