As you said, you had regular periods but only duration is short and if it is continue for months and months, then it is absolutely normal.

I think there is no need of any consultation for that. Common causes of short periods are:
1) Stress
2) Excessive exercise
3) Low weight

As you are taking tablet Senovilla, I will suggest you to consult with gynaecologist about continuation of tablet, but as physician I don't think so.

Also, I will suggest you to do regular exercise, meditation, yoga, follow healthy habits.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
