any tips for not feeling absolutely exhausted during my period? I just can't seem to stay awake today at all,but I can't spend the whole day sleeping. sidenote: it is also the worst and heaviest day of my period and that could be contributing as well? any and all tip appreciated. I'm so tired

      Are you on iron supplements? If not I'd definitely recommend starting some, and get your bloods checked to make sure your levels are where they should be.

      Yes always take care of yourself listen to your body dont push too hard durring these times. I take potassium to help with cramps, b12 for a little energy boost and green tea if I need extra caffeine. I also try to get 1 liquid iv in thats a pretty good source of electrolytes and potassium. Take long showers sit in the shower try to do something that will make you a little happy if it's a fast-food meal a drink or video games. It's rough and it seems like forever but this too shall pass. You got it! I hope you feel better 💕

      I'm sorry I don't know. But on these days u try to be gentle with myself and rest as much as I need to and eat as much as I need to.

      Your heavy flow can definitely be a contributing factor. I’ve been taking iron during my periods and I’ve noticed a great improvement. B-12 is also a really great supplement you can take. The fatigue is unfortunately the nature of the beast when I comes to periods 😕 Drink plenty or water, try to take a walk outside and if you can squeeze in a 15-20 min nap, I highly recommend that. If all else fails, know that this will pass and it’s completely normal. Sometimes just knowing and accepting that helps a ton! Good luck & I hope you feel better soon!
