This sounds very weird but instead of getting my period
Patient :This sounds very weird but instead of getting my period some months just brown discharge comes out instead and then other ones I will just get these light red clots I barely ever have a normal period is this normal?
Thanks for the query.
I understand your concern.
Scanty flow during periods is called as hypomenorrhea.
It can occur due to many causes like hormonal imbalance due to causes like poly cystic ovary disease, stress and strain, weight changes etc, thyroid abnormalities, prolactin level abnormalities, hereditary, general conditions like anemia and deficiency of other nutrients, diabetes etc.
Very scanty flow is not a common finding.
As you are having hypomenorrhea since months, better to get evaluated.
Please do consult your doctor, get examined to access the built, hemoglobin levels, thyroid status, BMI etc.
Investigations like thyroid profile, gonadal hormonal profile, prolactin levels estimation, estimation of blood sugar levels and hemoglobin levels, ultrasound etc helps in finding out the causes of scanty flow.
Then treatment can be planned accordingly.
