Can anemia affect someones menstrual flow? My girlfriend has been late and blames it on the fact that she's anemic. I feel that we have other problems. Please clear this up.
Response from Mr. Molaghan
Hello, Any source of physiological or psychological stress can cause the menstrual period to be late, and anemia is a physiological stressor. However, I think your hunch might be right that something else is going on. She needs to be checked out by her health care provider.
