Want more real mum questions sent to you?


Ask your question

  • I get so very tired and lathargic leading up to my period. Mine get worse if my iron is low.



  • Yes I get lethargic and have a migraine for about 3 days before. Maybe check with your GP as there maybe be an underlying issue such as thyroid etc.



  • I can’t recall I was feeling overly tired leading up to my period, but often didn’t feel happy in my skin (tummy aches, emotional)



  • I agree that you are probably eating too much sugary food or others + drinks that are high in carbohydates. If you have a look on google there are good and bad carbohydrates. Good ones keep you feeling full for longer and you don’t eat too much. Bad ones give you a quick burst of energy then you feel tired for awhile, not just a few minutes. A lot well known dieticians use similar lists. I have been guilty of the same habit.



  • I do! I also get super moody then when my period comes I’m like, “Oh.. that’s why I’ve been like that :/ ha ha laugh with me husband.”



  • i get moody and somewhat tired not too much though.



  • Cravings for sugar was my constant. But not a special tiredness.



  • The week leading up to mine I AM EXHAUSTED!!! And I want to eat all the sugary foods in the land! If I remember I take a double dose of Magnesium that week and it helps a lot!
