The condition of extremely light periods or scanty menstrual flow is medically known as Hypomenorrhea. It's a very common condition among girls and women and in many cases, not a reason to worry.



If your grandmother or mother had light periods then there is a high probability that your periods might be light too. This is normal and nothing to worry about. The ability to conceive in this case is not affected by this condition.

Hormonal imbalance

There are many hormones (estrogen, progesterone and more) that regulate the menstrual cycle. Using hormonal contraception methods like oral contraceptive pills cause hormonal imbalance leading to light periods. Hormonal imbalance can also result from stress.

Anorexia (extremely low body fat) or excessive exercise

Low body fat can cause your menstrual flow to lessen or even stop. Gaining some body fat to normal proportions can bring your periods back to regular.

Scarring of uterine lining

Scarring of uterine lining (also known as Asherman's syndrome) reduces the area of the inner lining of the uterus upon which the endometrium is formed leading to lesser menstrual flow.


If the tests have not pointed to anything unusual then treatment is not necessary for your light periods.


You can get an ovulation predictor kit to detect if you are ovulating or not. If you are ovulating then conceiving might not be a problem.

Yes if your starting your period or if you are a grandma or older than it's normal.
