Can being anemic make you get sick with your period?

This year I seem to get a cold every 2 months, and always around the time of my period.

I don't eat much meat (just don't like it) but do eat healthy and lots of vegetables, etc...could I be anemic? Is this a sign?

Why don't you go get a blood test and find out? I know your probably scared but trust me it will be worth it. I was scared when I got a blood test but I knew it had to be done because I wanted to find out if anything was wrong with me. And nothing Thank God was! So go for it! Bye

I don't know about getting a cold. But I am anemic and when I get my period my anemia gets worse. So I get more tired, more cold and dizzy. This happens espicaily if they are heavy. But ask to get it checked it is done by a simple blood test.
