Should not cause: That unless you are losing so much blood that you would be so severe anemic and not getting enough blood to the brain which would be extremely rare , you need to be evaluated for other causes of memory loss, please see a neurologist for that and you need to see your gyn to treat the irregular heavy period, no reason to suffer with that.
