How can I tell the difference between ovulation bleeding and implantation bleeding? I've had scanty light pink bleeding for 1-2 days.

Sir I am 20 years old and got scanty period from last two months. Is it dangerous for me. How it can be cured.

Sir I am 20 years old and got scanty period from last two months. Is it dangerous for me. How it can be cured.

Not dangerous: It is not dangerous but needs to be investigated. Did you lose weight recently? If you did that may explain the change. Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

It's not too unusual for women to have slightly irregular periods now and then, whether it be having longer or shorter periods or cycles or heavier or lighter cycles. Sometimes our hormones are just not having a completely normal month and that's nothing to be too concerned with. If it happens all the time see you doc to talk about options to make it more regular. ...Read more
