Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

If you get your menses in your regular dates every month, then you need not worry. It can be due to some general health weakness or anemia. Take iron & calcium supplements, Cramps are quite normal symptoms every women experiences, however you can take spasmoproxyvon caps, one stat when you need, for backache take analgesic, Ibuprofen or paracetamol. If irregular periods become a routine then you should visit your Gynae & get examined PCOS is a common condition that causes irregular periods or spotting. Go through all the investigations required & get treated.

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