Hello, The amount of bleeding can vary from mild to severe during menstrual cycles. If you are not havng any other symptoms then there is nothing to worry about. For now. check your blood flow duriing periods for the next 2-3 months and also get a serum TSH test done to rule out possibility of thyroid.

Dear Ma'am, Thank you for your query regarding reduced blood flow during menstruation. The normal menstrual cycle should be at least 80 ml or stop within 7 days. There is increased menstrual period flow and length in the first few years of the cycle which reduces subsequently. If you have no  other symptoms there is nothing worry about. However monitor your periods for the next 3 months. It would be good to do a serum TSH. Regards, Dr. Aditi Kishore Shinde
