Hello Erin,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you had been having regular periods, it would suggest that you were having regular and periodic ovulation. If you had been sexually active without protection, chances of pregnancy are possible. It is difficult to comment on the exact cause for your absent periods without examining you and going ahead with further evaluation. If you are not pregnant, the 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, changes in stress levels or lifestyle, etc. You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you get your periods and regulate them. 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.
Take care.
