Question: I am 37-years-old and have not had a period for 2 years. What could it be?

Dr.Amos answers: There are several reasons why a woman does not get her period (amenorrhea). The first reason is pregnancy, in which case the pregnancy test would be positive. Or breastfeeding. If there is no pregnancy, then other reasons include:

1.Premature ovarian failure
2.Premature menopause
3.Polycystic ovary syndrome
4.Thyroid issues
5.Pituitary tumor
6.Uterine like Asherman syndrome
8. Low body weight
9. Excessive exercise
10.Birth control pills
11.Certain Medications

Your doctor can take a history and do some tests do find out the exact cause of amenorrhea and to treat it if necessary
