Scanty period is a sign of Adrenal fatigue  which is a part of PCOS. I would  take it seriously as it is the stepping  stone to other complications  of PCOS. No wonder you may be feeling  tired or dizzy also.
Next Steps
Good news is that your problem  can be totally reversed, not by masking the symptoms  but by addressing  the root cause of your issue. To know more on this, please read my blogs on www.truhealing.com or practo health feeds. Hope that helps....

Flow during menses is affected by several factors, like medications, stress, concurrent illness. PCOS can too lead to it. In case you are overweight for your height, weight loss can help. Have yourself evaluated to assess if you need metformin in addition to normoz
