Short period and hair loss

This answer was rated:

Hi, for the last 2 months my periods last only 2-3 days where before it used to last 5-6 days. I didn't have sex for a while sobI can not be pregnant. I do not use any contraception. I also experience hair loss and my nails started to break. It started 2 years ago but for the last 3-4 months my hair became visibly thinner. I have healthy diet and weight(58kg)
Most likely nothing at all is wrong. It is possible that you have a vitamin deficiency such as vitamin D which can happen even with healthy diet. It is also possible that you have a thyroid deficiency. You will need to see a Dr for blood work to have an accurate diagnosis.
