Irregular periods over least month (3x in 5 weeks), with cystic acne on chin. uncontrolled weight loss over few months.5-6kg. Blood test reveals low iron. Is it somehow related to hormonal imbalance? Because of frequent chin acne lately. Is iron anemia because of internal bleeding or polyps? What test should i go for

If your blood work indicates iron deficiency anemia, your doctor may order additional tests to identify an underlying cause, such as:
Endoscopy
Colonoscopy
Ultrasound. Women may also have a pelvic ultrasound to look for the cause of excess menstrual bleeding, such as uterine fibroids.
