HI,
Tuberculosis especially of the genital tract can cause menstrual abnormalities. For absence of menses and scanty menses, you need to take care of your general health, correct anaemia if any, take multivitamin tablets and see your Doctor. There can be thinning of the lining of the uterus and a consultation with a gynaecologist will help.
Take care and good luck.

Thank you so much for the reply. I had pulmonary TB which started on my lymph node near my neck.

Not on the genital tract. So do you think this could be a result of the strong antibiotics or any other pb.

Tks to advise
