Fatigue

Heavy periods (menorrhagia) can result in a range of physical symptoms including fatigue which can last beyond the time of your period.

If you suffer with heavy periods and are experiencing fatigue, it may be due to low levels of iron in your blood (anaemia) or because of hormone levels in your blood. You might also be entering early menopause.

  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Difficulty starting and completing tasks.
