Over a week I became very pale and dark rings formed under my eyes (as If i was tired) Then I had my period, which was expected, and what I saw was "Yellow vagial discharge" icky right? But yesterday I started feeling lightheaded so please help before this gets worse.

  • The dark circles, paleness, and dizziness suggest that you could be anemic. If you have heavy periods it's not uncommon, and your OB/GYN can put you on iron supplements to take during your period. It's important to know if you are anemic because it can lead to more serious problems, plus if you get dizzy and pass out while driving you could hurt yourself or someone else.Vaginal discharge can be normal, each person is different and some women have more than others. If this is something new for you that you've never seen before you could have a yeast infection or bacterial vaginosis (an infection of the vagina). Both are easily treated.Whether you have anemia, an infection, or something else, the best thing to do is see your doctor.Good luck and keep us posted,E
