I feel exhausted when my period is due. I could sleep for 12 hours and still not feel rested.

When you cycle, you are more likely than not to be slighly anemic. That would easily account for your fatigue....but if itcontinues, you might want to seek medical attention. Could have lots of other causes as well.

I know I dont usually. But my friend does. It just depends on the person. What i can suggest is like a week before just try getting some extra sleep?

I'm way older than you, but in the middle of regular periods and menopause (peri-menopause). So I'm fatigued in general due to peri-menopause, and just before my period is expected (I get them intermittently) I become very run-down and fatigued for a few days prior to my possibly expected period. I'll walk my dogs as I normally do, and feel breathless and easily tired. Surprises me every time though.

I also get PMSy, accidental prone driving, or when washing dishes, accidentally hitting furniture, things like that.

It is pretty normal I think. It is also due to hormones fluxes. Some people go on birth control pills or HRT because of it.

If you get extremely weak, be good to see your doctor. Otherwise just expect it, and hang in there!

Yes very, along with bloated, moody, grouchy, and everything else that goes with it.

Once a month I just want to shed my skin and crawl in a hole and so does my S/O.
