Hello and welcome to ehealth forum. I have read your question and would like to help.

Your haemoglobin level is low ,which can result in raised ESR.
Low haemoglobin means anemia, most comm on cause if anemia in women in blood loss (during menstruation) and iron deficiency.
Further work up is required for proper diagnosis.

I hope it helps and wish you good luck.
Kindly contact your healthcare provider.
Dr Khalil
