I am 40, female, 1.75m and overweight. I have taken up my dream job 3 months ago and REALLY enjoy it although it is hardwork and alot of responsibility. I have even lost some weight without trying as I do not eat out of frustration anymore and since there is no lift in the building I run the stairs about 10 times a day. I take 10mg loratadien daily for my allergies and Centrum as I do not get all the nutrition from my food, my mom cooks for me too and dad is very fusy. I have been on Yasmin since Feb 10 (my doctor said it will help for painfull and heavy periods) and had a period lasting a month although flow was lower for about 3 weeks. I am constantly tired and have difficulty staying awake for supper. I get, average, 7 hours sleep a night. I would like to go back to gym and loose more weight, as my hours would make it easier for me to go now. I have had blood and urine tests done (blood count, sugar, cholesterol, liver and kidney function, thyroid etc) and the only thing that showed was e.coli in my urine. I was put on Augmentin for 6 weeks and the retest came back clear. What else can cause the tiredness and will I not be even more tired going to gym? I still have a lot of weight to loose and want to loose as I still battle to find clothes.

Hallo Tired
If you menstruated heavily, you may have an iron deficiency anemia - did they check your iron levels? Exercise won''t make you more tired but will probably increase your energy levels. Try getting in an hour extra sleep per night.
