Balanced diet.: A balanced diet with healthy amounts of meat and vegetables is a great way to help fatigue during a period. During a period there is blood loss and so there is loss of iron. Meat has iron in it and this helps restore blood cells which restore oxygen carrying and thus energy. Read more

Can I be Pregnant?: We now live in a world where guessing about pregnancy is unnecessary and oftentimes a waste of energy. We do not use ambiguous symptoms in any way to diagnose pregnancy. Fatigue is not a common symptom of an early pregnancy anyway. If your period is delayed and you were sexual when you were ovulating this cycle then get a home pregnancy test. Read more

Have u been checked?: Abdominal discomfort can be caused by lots of things & may indeed originate outside the GI tract. Further evaluation is in order before anyone can answer "what to do." Your doctor will want to re-examine you as well as know the quality, timing, duration, exact location & associations (eating, position, activity, stooling, urinating). Best 1st check a home pregnancy test at this point for clarity. Read more

Most likely, normal: Rule out pregnancy, of course. My own take on this is that, particularly with heavy menses, there is notable amount of retrograde menstrual flow (back flow of menstrual effluent) through the fallopian tubes into the abdominal cavity. This could serve to irritate the peritoneal lining (eliciting pain, bloating, etc.) as well as nearby bowel; leading to some of the possible GI symptoms described. Read more

Abnormal: You should be evaluated immediately by a gynecologist. Your symptoms are do to anemia from blood loss. Several conditions can cause abnormal uterine bleeding. This episode of bleeding can be treated with either high dose estrogen, or lysteda, or hysteroscopy & d&c. You need an ultrasound, and other blood work for further evaluation. See gynecologist now.

See doctor: Get tested for other causes of fatigue first. Then speak with a gynecologist. Progesterone levels increase during the second half of the menstrual cycle. Progesterone can increase fatigue, anxiety and depression in some. Talk to your doctor about ways to balance hormones. Read more

Call 911 Go to ER: The first question an emergency physician would ask him/herself is "does this woman have an ectopic (tubal) pregnancy? " and the first test they would perform is a pregnancy test. Ectopic refers to a pregnancy that is outside of the uterus and is a true emergency. If you are not pregnant then we can sift through the other possibilities for your pain: infection, ovarian cyst, normal pregnancy, etc. Read more

Possibly: The symptoms you describe (nausea, fatigue, minor cramps, spotting) could certainly be consistent with pregnancy. I suggest seeing an ob/gyn for a blood pregnancy test which is more sensitive. Read more
