    Goodmorning. How many pads do you use daily? Are you having any abnormal vaginal discharge? Have you had a D&C recently? A D&C can cause poor healing of the uterus which could cause this scanty bleeding. A hormonal imbalance can also be a cause which will require a hormonal assay to confirm the diagnosis. Also, an infection can also be a cause, if you are having any vaginal discharge, you should do a high vaginal swab to confirm.

    Alright ma, you would need to do a pelvic ultrasound scan to check your uterus and ovaries. An hormonal assay would also be required to rule out a hormonal imbalance.
