(Abnormally Heavy Menstrual Bleeding)
One of the most common reasons for anemia,
other than nutritional deficiencies, is heavy menstrual bleeding,
called menorrhagia. In severe cases, you may find yourself
changing pads or tampons (or even double pads or tampons) every hour
or so. You may also pass large blood clots, which can be painful and
may leave you feeling weak, fatigued, and literally drained of energy
for a day or two each month.
