Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the menopausal status and the underlying cause for your absent periods without examining you and going through your investigation results. The possibility 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, genetic problems, etc. You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance, or consider visiting another gynecologist for second opinion. 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.
