Anemia: Young women lose a variable amount of blood with their period.Other nutritional deficiencies like low B12 ,diabetes and low thyroid need to be ruled out. Be sure you are getting 7-9 hours sleep, and not just on weekends. See your primary or GYN for blood work-CBC, BMP, B12,Folate, Liver profile, A1C and thyroid profile
