I was wondering... women... does your UC get worse during your period? Does the cramping from your period make you flare up or is it only me?
Also. If you're anemic as it is because of the UC do you get even weaker when you're on your period because you're losing so much blood? I'm honestly feeling like passing out right now and I'm thinking it's because I'm losing blood from my period.
Would Iron pills work to change this and I'm sorta scared to take them cuz I don't want to be at work and have the iron mess with my stomach... being as if I started taking them tomorrow it would be the first time and I don't know how they'd react with me.
