Extreme tiredness ALL the time


Q: I'm extremely tired ALL the time latley! I don't know why. I sleep 7-8 hours a night, but i still need naps, usally 2-3 hours, i just fall asleep and HARD. Now I've had implanion in for a little over a year and haven't had a period all the time so I can rule out pregnancy but i think it might be from a low blood count? I have had pretty low blood counts in the past, but for some reason all my doctors told me "don't worry about it" even though they were really low. Could this be affecting how tired I am? Or, could hormones from the implant also be affecting my energy level?
