Dear No Energy
Although your period has stopped and it was not heavy it did last for 2 weeks, so it is important for you to see the doctor for a checkup just to make sure that everything is in order. When you see the dr, tell him/her that you are feeling so tired because he/she may need to check your blood iron levels to see if you are anaemic or not. If you are anaemic, then eating foods such as liver, red meat, chicken, fish, and eggs, iron-fortified cereals, bread or maize meal, and dried fruit like raisins with their pips (chew the pips), should help you increase your iron intake and reverse the anaemia. It can, however, take quite a while before the anaemia is cured, so please be patient.
Please go for that checkup ASAP
