Scanty or skipped period can occur from various causes. In you age it can be normal. But as you have cramps, infection should be ruled out. Other probability can be due to physical or emotional stress, nutrition deficiency, hormonal imbalances, fibroid, growth etc. You need to have a consultation with gynecologist to have an examination & find out the precise cause and management accordingly.

Hope this information will help you.
Wish your healthy life.

A few years before the start of menopause there can be irregular period. If cramp persists, better to consult earlier.
