If you would have excessive blood loss it is possible to become hypotensive which can also cause dizziness. Recommend you discuss this with your gynecologist and come up with a treatment plan.

She would then clear completely.She was never able to leave the psychiatric facility during the entire time that i worked at this particular state hospital.Hormone fluctuations can have obvious powerful effects in predisposed individuals. ...Read more
