Other possibilities include secondary amenorrhea due to obesity, increased body fat percentage, brain or pituitary tumors, PCOS, premature ovarian failure, thyroid dysfunction, use of certain medications, previous D&C, hormonal imbalances, etc. You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance.
