Causes of Scanty Menstruation (Hypomenorrhea)View: 1857
Scanty menstruation (also known as Hypomenorrhea) is a medical condition in which a woman’s menstrual flow is very scanty. It is the opposite of the more common menstrual disorder – Menorrhagia (i.e. Excessive Menstrual Discharge). In some cases, hypomenorrhea is absolutely normal. It occurs at the extremes of a woman’s reproductive life, i.e. just after puberty and just before menopause. This is because the irregular ovulation that a woman experiences at these stages of her reproductive life causes the lining of the uterus NOT to develop properly. In more abnormal cases, hypomenorrhea may be a sign that something has gone awry.
