Decrease in mensural flow

I have been into intense strength training for about 2 years now. I train for 5 days a week with a healthy moderate calorie protein focused diet . My periods have always been regular, sometimes early and last for 4-5 days with average flow. Lately my mensural flow has reduced to 3 days and scanty( requires one sanitary pad a day). Could exercise be the cause ? Are my estrogen levels reduced due to weight training ? Please advice.

Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
Yes it could be possible but there could be a few other things also which need to be looked at.
For a better understanding of your condition, kindly consult a gynaecologist in person for further evaluation and management. 
She will have to run some tests also.
Best regards.

You still have a regular 3 days cycle. Consult  a gynaecology doc if it doesn't settle spontaneously
