Do Not Consume Blood Booster Medication During Menstruation?
Hello, I’ve heard that blood boosting pills for teens are very important. because the smell of the pill is not good for me, I have never consumed blood-enhancing pills in my life hehe. during my period, there were no dangerous complaints whatsoever. I feel during menstruation is just a change in mood, normal stomach pain, and just tired. Will there be any side effects that I will get in the future? thanks.
Thank you for the question.
One of the most feared of iron deficiency is anemia. This anemia can cause sufferers to feel weak, often drowsy, easily tired, pale, shortness of breath, palpitations, difficulty concentrating, dizziness, headaches, and even hands and feet often feel cold. Not only that, iron deficiency can also make you more susceptible to infections, dry skin and hair that is easily damaged, swollen mouth cavity and pain, and excessive anxiety. Therefore, this condition should be prevented early on.
Women of childbearing age, especially those who are menstruating, are very at risk of having iron deficiency. And, in anticipation of this lack of iron from the dietary pattern, women are advised to consume iron-supplementing tablets once a week routinely, and 1 time a day during menstruation. If this is not done, but the intake of iron from your diet can still meet your iron needs, this possibility does not harm you. But on the contrary, if the intake of iron from your diet is inadequate, obviously you run the risk of anemia and various complications above.
Changes in mood, abdominal pain, and fatigue during menstruation that you experience can naturally occur due to hormonal fluctuations, but can also be part of a sign of iron deficiency. Before your condition gets worse, you better force yourself to consume blood-boosting tablets even though the aroma and taste is indeed unpleasant. Also counterbalance this effort by consuming lots of iron-rich foods, for example dark green leafy vegetables, red meat, liver, whole grains, and fortified cereals.
