Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Considering your age, your BMI (body mass index) is high. It means you are overweight. Sometimes, due to obesity, you have hormonal imbalance leading to irregular periods and decreased flow.

You need to get your thyroid profile and serum prolactin checked and you need to work on your weight loss.

For more information consult an obstetrician and gynaecologist online --> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/obstetrician-and-gynaecologist
