Hi, I’m an 18 year old girl facing irregular periods and constant spotting from the start of February until today. Fortunately my periods don’t affect my daily life, I don’t feel tired easily, just sometimes have mood swings. Is it possible that my weight is causing my irregular periods? Because my BMI is 17 kg/m^2 and is considered as underweight, also recently I notice I have less appetite ever since MCO began. Please give me advice on the issue I’m facing, thank you.
