Just wondering if getting your period or actually having it will affect you levels of iron or other things for a blood test?

It depends on what the "other things" are. You really should ask the nurse/doc about it when you go.

I would say unless your periods are incredibly heavy it wont have a huge affect on your results if any at all.
