Scanty period&weight gain

I am a student with scanty periods. Earlier they were normal but from past 2 years I get blood flow for 3 days only and its extremely low. I can actually go on with 3 pads for 3 days but I keep changing every 6 hrs for hygiene sake. Also, my stomach used to pain a lot during the start of periods but now the pain has also stopped from past 8 months. My lifestyle had been unhealthy but now I have moved to healthy diet options and basic regular stretchings. My weight has increased especially in the lower area and many people suggest the weight gain in hips and thighs is due to scanty periods. What should I do to cure my blood flow and reduce lower body weight?
