In brief: Fatigue
Heavy period could be the cause of anemia in teenage girl- however other causes also have to be ruled out.
Usually presented with fatigue, lack of energy, pallor, sometime also with shortness of breath and dizziness, poor concerntration, sleepy etc. Go to see your pediatrician and have further evaluation. Craving of something unusual also can happen- such as- ice cubes, baking soda etc.

In brief: Weakness
The main cause of anemia in a teen age girl is iron deficiency related to heavy menses.
Anemia can have other causes. Symptoms of anemia are mainly weakness, easy fatiguability, pale skin and in some patients craving ice.
