Objective: The etiology of iron deficiency anemia, which develops as a result of menstrual bleeding in the premenopausal period, is unknown. Vitamin K1 has an important role in the coagulation cascade and is not a well known vitamin. The aim of this study was to investigate whether or not Vitamin K1 had a role in anemia developing in the premenopausal period, for which no additional reason could be found.
