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