Had regular periods previously. Now, having one day periods. Reason?

Hello. I got my menstrual cycle normal a long time ago. 4-5days normal bleeding . Every 30-35days. But now, I am experiencing 1day period last month and then now. I am not an athlete or do heavy exercise. My period only lasts for 24hrs or even half a day only and it is so little that I don t need to use pads. What s the meaning of this? I am only 20years old. Please help me, it is possible for me to get pregnant? But I think that s impossible because I am sexually active a long ago and never get pregnant.

First thing, you should undergo one home pregnancy test or blood test for beta HCG to confirm or exclude pregnancy status as you are sexually active long time.

In exclusion of pregnancy, reasons for low menstrual flow are hormonal imbalance, stress/ anxiety, thyroid problem, wt gain / extreme loss, irregular eating habits,psychological factor etc.

You may need to do some investigations to rule out causative factors through USG pelvis, thyroid profile & other hormone assay etc. Consult with your doctor and take suggestive measures.

Avoid stress / anxiety, take healthy diet with iron supplements, eat more fruits & vegetables, control body weight and maintain genital hygiene properly.
