I have Pcos I been on my period for 3 weeks but now the past 3 days I been very dizzy it gets worst while standing very tired and not eat as I eat usually and my feet get swollen at times. I can't go to the doctor till next week but this has never happend to me I feel very weird the first day I passed out twice I had periods that has lasted 3 months and this never happened before. Will it be that I need iron?

dizziness, fatigue, fainting or passing out are maybe due to bleeding (your period for 3 weeks).. whenever i have my period i often take iron (Ferrous Sulfate) to aid the feeling of dizziness and fatigue. I take iron because my body is losing blood that normal.

girl, i suffer symptoms like you do. what i do is to have a lot of rest, take iron supplements, iron rich foods, avoid drinking coffee, tea and ingesting antacids, because they decrease iron absorption. And see my doctor.

go girl.get well soon.

You need to do a blood test to find out your haemoglobin count.
Since you had the periods for 3 week, the tiredness and dizziness will be because of the blood loss.

PCOD is a chronic problem you should find out a long lasting solution.

Natural/traditional medicines work wonders in such cases.Increase your fluid intake especially fruit juices.

Get well soon.
