Anaemia and periodsWatch this thread
I'm 18 and have only had 8 periods. My last period was in January (no I'm not pregnant) and I often go months between periods. However, when I do get periods, they are very heavy and I often feel very tired. Would this suggest that I am anemic? I am going to get a blood test to check but j was just wondering. Also, is there anyone else who gets such infrequent periods?
Drops in iron levels during periods can make you feel weaker, especially if you're anaemic. Eating iron rich foods like red meat and spinach can help. You can also have Spatone which are sachets of iron rich water that you can add to juice.
