Yes. Lower levels of energy are the most common symptom of PMS. Yet, there is nothing to worry about if you feel less energy before or during your periods. Feeling short on fuel when you need it can be not very pleasant. 

Feeling low and drained of energy is normal, and many women feel the same way. However, it must be treated if a severe form of PMS happens called premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD). It is when you feel extreme tiredness and numerous emotions.

You can know if you have PMDD; it occurs 7 to 10 days before the period and has similar symptoms to PMS. The signs you can feel during PMS and PMDD are accompanied by emotional symptoms like- sadness, anger, feeling out of control, crying spells, irritability, and lack of interest in things.

Why Do You Feel Low On Energy During Periods?

There are multiple reasons that you feel low on energy during periods, but here I have categorised them broadly, and we will have a look at them:-

  1. Hormones- One primary reason you go through so many emotions during your period is that the hormones go through a roller coaster that causes fatigue. The imbalance in hormones is what causes rapid mood changes.
  2. Cravings- The sudden craving for carbs and the need for a sugar rush are tempting, but that does not mean you will have energy from them. Sugar rush usually is packed with energy, but in this case, you will feel a sudden rush and then back to feeling low, which will again lead to you getting back to the craving, yet having at it again. It is a repetitive cycle, yet a vicious one!
  3. Iron deficiency- The iron levels become low at this point can make the condition a little worse. Iron can be a reason for certain discomforts like not getting a night of good sleep and stress, then you should keep track of your Iron intake.

2. Nutrient Rich Food

At this time of the month, craving sweets and fast foods are hard to resist, but there are better options than just giving in to these easy foods. Sugar intake may leave you with a sugar comedown in the afternoon, making you feel sleepy. Try having protein-enriched foods like vegetables and pulses. 

When you lose blood, it causes iron loss, so you should try to have iron-rich foods like spinach. Also, foods which will help you with the cramps. Iron is also responsible for your fatigue, so monitor your iron intake. You can even have hydrate tea to help you with the pain.

Sleep is a prominent factor that most people tend to neglect, but it plays a crucial role in periods. Sleep may be one such thing that everybody considers but do you do it right?

  • Avoid caffeine after the first half of the day
  • Have a sanctuary for shut-eye
