Customer: replied 11 days ago.
I'm 21. My cycles usually are 30/31 days. Sometimes they go to 34 days but that's rare.
I had unprotected sex in October and since then my period flow is coming less and less each month. I have done pregnancy tests and they're all negative. Also done some blood analysis and it was all good.
But I'm worried because my last 2 cycles I barely have flow

Respected customer

Thank you for staying online,

I am sorry to hear about your problem, and I can understand how uncomfortable you may be feeling, but hopefully, we can resolve this.

The symptoms you have described of having a low flow of bleeding in the last 2 cycles can be due to various causes.

The most common causes are- stress, being overweight or underweight, imbalance of hormones, polycystic ovarian syndrome/estrogen dominance, uterine abnormalities (fibroids/cysts/polyps/endometriosis).

Stress/anxiety is one of the most common causes that disturb the female menstrual cycle.

Hormonal imbalance is another common and probable cause.

Please stop worrying and be relaxed.

No need to worry at all. Such fluctuation can sometimes happen in women’s life.

Mild hormonal fluctuation can cause this.

Please do not worry. There is nothing serious or dangerous about this. You need to wait and watch.

It is generally recommended to wait and watch for 3 cycles. If this persists, you may need to consult your gyne doctor for tests and examination to know the underlying cause, and then treatment will be done accordingly.

Most of the time, simply decreasing your stress, improving nutrition, and adding adequate nutritional supplements can provide a natural way.

Eat healthy and nutritious.

Take a nutritious diet containing the right amount of iron, calcium, magnesium, multivitamins.

No need to worry at all. Such fluctuation can sometimes happen in a female’s life.

I hope I have been able to clarify the situation for you and helped in resolving your query.

Thank you

My concern is it's not just my 2 last cycles. But period is being changing for months now. I got really worried last cycle because I can't call this a period.

I don't have a gyne doctor. I live in the uk not that long. I have a gp that they don't take anything serious
Expert:  Dr.Andrew replied 11 days ago.

Respected customer

I can understand your concern and worry.

Normal menstrual bleeding lasts for 3-7 days. During this period 50-150 ml of bloody discharge are excreted.

As you have described that you have low bleeding for the last few months, this can most likely be due to hormonal changes.

Please do not worry. There does not seem to be anything serious or dangerous about this condition, and it is treatable with medications accordingly.

The following treatment measures are recommended for you now:

-Take measures to relieve your stress and anxiety.

-You can take plant estrogens (phytoestrogens, isoflavones).

-Eat healthy and nutritious.

-Most of the time, simply decreasing your stress, improving nutrition, and adding adequate nutritional supplements can provide a natural way to restore regular periods.

-Take a nutritious diet containing a good amount of iron, calcium, magnesium, multivitamins.

-You can take Omega-3 fatty acids, such as fish oil

-Take magnesium in the diet. Pumpkin seeds, spinach, salmon, kale, and brown rice are all good sources of magnesium

-You can take vitamin D. This is very helpful to maintain normal periods.

All of this should help you greatly.

Please do not worry. There is nothing serious or dangerous about this.
