Welcome to ehealthforum,
The absence of periods (if not due to pregnancy) could be due to various other causes that include endometrial layer damage, ovarian suppression, ovarian failure, ovarian cysts, PCOD, thyroid hormone dysfunction, etc. The exact cause can only be made out after thorough evaluation done by your doctor/gynecologist. Consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for further evaluation and assistance. Get started on appropriate treatment as indicated by your examination and investigation results. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
