      Hi Mandy, can I ask if you periods are still regular at this stage and if so, how often they come, for example, every 28 days?

      Hi Ashley, can I ask what age you are and if you have been to your doctor yet to have them investigate this? Can I also ask how often you have a period, for example every 28 days, if your periods are quite heavy and also if you suffer from any other symptoms during this time?

      Hi Jackie, as your periods have been heavy for some time now, you are at risk of anaemia which can make us feel dizzy and quite unwell. I’d suggest going to your doctor as soon as possible as they can prescribe medication to help stem the bleeding initially. Longer-term, it would be worth taking a gentle iron tonic such as Floradix, and Agnus castus whilst your cycle is still on the frequent and/or heavy side.
