Question: psm or something worse?

a month ago I started haveing what I thought was a normal monthly but it would start one day with a light flow, and stop the next day, (this happened at lest once a week), and now for over two weeks I have been flowing lightly to really light. I'm scared about the Idea of going to a hospital to see a doctor, and I'm not sure if this has anything to do with me being pre-diabetic or not. Should I see a doctor about this,r is this something I can deal with at home, or will it pass with time?

User avatar If you are on hormonal contraceptives this can be a normal variant, however if it continues much longer do see a doctor, especially if you are not taking hormones.
