Hi there and welcome to the forum.  yes, absolutely.  Anemia can be related to spotting and irregular periods.  A lack of oxygen to the body is the contributing factor to this.  

What type of anemia do you have?  Important to know so that you can take the right steps to alleviate this concern.  Sometimes it is iron deficiency and one takes iron pills and sometimes it is a vitamin deficiency such as B12 and folate.  Are you addressing the anemia with either of these options?  Hope so so that you can feel better sweetie.

good luck
