Hi,thanks for query.You need to go for examination by your gynecologist.Just do not take any tablet,you might be having some hormonal imbalance which is causing this.Take good nutritious diet and visit your doctor.The discharge may be because of some infection.bye.

Hi,
Due to hormonal imbalance you get this problem.
You seek advice of gynacologist,she will advice some hormonal treatment for about three months and after the treatment every thing will be alright.
You go for Hemoglobin estimation,many a time anemia cause scanty or delayed period.
