    Anyone has anemia from having long periods though.

    I have been having the anemia condition for awhile since I have long periods though. I am really tired when I have my period ya. Does anyone here have the anemia condition from having long periods though. How do you be less tired when you have your period ya. I usually don't have much energy though. I just feel like not doing much ya. Even if I sleep more I am still tired. I think before my period I am pretty tired though. Anyone else like that. Is there anything I can do when I have my period to have more energy though. Thanks.

    Do you take iron supplements ? I have the same problem and I take desiccated liver in tablets (don't forget the vitamin c). Have you been diagnosed with low iron or anemia ? If not, you should get a blood test before taking any iron supplement.

    Re: Anyone has anemia from having long periods though.

    I was diagnosed with Anemia 2 years ago. Last summer sometime I stopped taking my iron pill because I just simply forgot and then thought well I feel fine. Just had a CBC on Aug. 11th and my levels were low and I was diagnosed iron deficient anemia, but it was my fault for not taking my iron. My pine is caused by heavy period that last 6 days. This time around I am having what feels like vertigo/ dizziness and I started taking my iron on August 14th, but I am still getting the dizziness and I absolutely hate it!!! Now my PCP said to take my iron with food and Vitamin D because the vita D helps the body absorb the iron. I was told Vita C doesn't really help absorb the iron. I'm just hoping the dizziness stops soon.
