Re: Shortness of breath with Period

As I stated in my post, the shortness of breath follows my period, so obviously, that's why I think it has everything to do with my period. It gets bad after I've been on my period a few days, then gets to the point of being severe after my period is over (for about one week to one and a half weeks directly following the day my period stops). Finally, it seems to start to get better to the point it's very manageable, but before it goes away completely, my period returns and it's all over again. Many women have low iron deficiency that comes with or is due to their periods, some get it so bad it turns into anemia. I'm just trying to find out if what I am describing sounds like that.
