Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the exact underlying cause for her absent periods without examining her and going ahead with further evaluation. If chances of pregnancy is suspected, she should consider visiting her doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). If she is not pregnant, the possibilities could include secondary amenorrhea due to obesity, increased body fat percentage, brain or pituitary tumors, PCOS, premature ovarian failure, thyroid dysfunction, use of certain medications, changes in stress levels or lifestyle, etc. She should consider visiting her doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation (physical examination, blood and hormonal work-up, ultrasound scan) to look for the underlying cause. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help her get periods, regulate them and get pregnant. She should be in regular monitoring and follow-up with her treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
