rbc count affecting womens performance

ive done a quick search of the archives but couldnt find anything that really answers this Q…

f a woman is losing 20-80cc’s of blood per cycle, her RBC count is going to drop and in accordance, so is her recovery ability, endurance etc.

Is this something that women just have to accept? It seems completely odd to me that a male endurance athlete strives for one particular thing, yet the women are at a distinct disadvantage.

Are there anyways that a woman could increase erythopoiesis naturally, or any info anywhere that specificallky addresses this issue?
