19 years old having problem with menstrual cycle. what could be the cause ?

Hi. I am laure, 19 years old. Last month I went to the hospital because I felt pain on the left side of the abdomen. After two blood exams, the doctor diagnosed constipation . So I did sports, drank laxatives, a lot of liquids and a week after that I had a pelvic exam because I still felt the pain. The thing is that I m still constipated. My period often lasts 6days but this time it lasted only 3days with no cramps like I used to have. I wanted to know what could be the cause ? noting that I take iron because I am anemic . Thanks for answering me.

Hello Laure;
welcome to HeathcareMagic
Irregular periods are due to hormonal imbalance;anaemia;thyroid problems ovarian cyst etc and less bleeding during periods can be due to anaemia for which you are on treatment.The pain in left side of abdomen can be due to inflammation in pelvis;constipation;even a ovarian cyst.So please get a ultrasound done to find the reason and then get treated accordingly.Please consult a Gynaecologist for opinion and treatment.
Thanks
