Thanks for the query.
Scanty flow during periods is called hypomenorrhea.
This can occur due to many causes like :
- Hormonal imbalance as in poly cystic ovary disease, stress and strain, weight changes etc
-Thyroid abnormalities.
- Anemia etc.
- If there is any possibility of pregnancy, better to rule out ectopic pregnancy or miscarriage once.
If there is no possibility of pregnancy, you can watch in the next cycle.
Possibly by improving the nutrition the flow may improve in the next cycles.
If there is possibility of pregnancy, once consult gynecologist, get examined and go for ultrasound.
By this workup the possible cause for your problem can be identified and treated.
Take care.
