A light period doesn’t always mean that something is wrong.

Talk to your doctor if you are worried about your menstrual flow, or if you frequently have lighter flows or miss several periods.

You may be concerned about a light period if:

  • You bleed for fewer than two days
  • List item
  • Your bleeding is very light, like spotting
  • You miss one or more regular-flow periods
  • You experience more frequent light periods than the typical 21- to 35-day cycle

There are many reason by which blood flow can be reduced

Birth control:- There are many birth control methods. some methods which prevent blood flow in periods or reduce it. You may also experience irregular periods if you have started or stopped taking birth control recently. Stress If you’re stressed, your brain can alter the menstrual cycle hormones. Once a stressful event passes, your periods should return to normal. So, try to reduce stress and overthinking.
