Welcome to e health forum.

No , Gallstones do not cause any issues or conditions that can lead to missed periods.

A Missed period is a major indicator of a possible pregnancy. Other possible symptoms generally seen in early pregnancy include - Breast tenderness , Nausea in the early morning, Vaginal discharge from pinkish white to brownish, Spotting, Fatigue, and increased urge to urinate .

Other common causes for a missed period, include - Severe stress and anxiety, acute weight changes, eating disorders (Bulemia), Athletes (Rigorous exercise), conditions like ovarian cysts (with irregular cycles) and hypothyroidism.

Hence you might consult with your OBGYN doctor, and seek appropriate help.

I hope this helps.
