why do i feel so dizzy?

This morning I got my period. Its regular but I started feeling a little dizzy and it just go worse. I had to lie down cuz I couldn't stand too long. Thought if I took a nap i's feel better. When I woke up, I couldn't even turn over. It felt WORSE. SO brought me some juice and I took an iron pill. I still feel crappy. Why??

  • I get slightly anemic every month on my period. Iron pills alone aren't great for absorbing iron. Try some dark green vegetables or red meat. Eating those along with orange juice or strawberries or something else high in vitamin C will help the absorption. Avoid high-calcium foods at the same time, calcium reduces absorption of iron.

  • You may need more than just juice. Depending on how low it is, it might take some more juice and maybe a piece or two of candy like Lifesavers.
