Hi , My age is 26. I am working as software engineers. I got married in March 2013. Still August my periods where regular. In the month of september i did nt get my periods. I went to the doctor but the pregnancy was negative. Doctor suggested me a tablet then i got my periods after 5 days but my periods was very little only for 2 and half days.

Brief Answer: Hypomenorrhea Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for the query. 1.Scanty flow during periods is called hypomenorrhea. It can occur due to causes like: -Hormonal imbalance due to poly cystic ovary disease, stress and strain, weight changes etc. - Thyroid hormonal abnormalities - Changes in prolactin levels -General conditions like anemia etc. For more details : 2. If ovulation is occurring regularly, there is possibility of pregnancy even with scanty flow. But hormonal imbalance can affect the fertility. So, better to get evaluated throughly to find out the exact cause for scanty flow. 3 . Consult gynecologist once, get examined and go for investigations like : - Ultrasound - Hormonal profile including estrogen, progesterone, LH and FSH -Thyroid hormonal abnormalities - Prolactin levels -Blood sugar levels, hemoglobin levels etc. With this workup the possible cause for your problem can be identified and treated.
