I have had both symptoms. At first my periods were very close together, sometimes twice in a month, then they were heavier and finally before they stopped, they became less frequent and lighter. Everyone is different and it takes time.

The dizziness would come and go. I finally figured out it had something to do with low blood sugar and I started making sure I ate every few hours and ate protein at every meal and snack.

Let me know if that helps.
