Missing periods recurrently requires a gynaecological and hormonal evaluation.
The most common causes are pregnancy, hormonal birth control methods, stress, medications and menopause. More unusual causes are pituitary gland tumours, thyroid disease, PCOS, and eating too few calories and/or over exercising.
While it is not dangerous or unusual to miss an occasional period, missing more periods may signify one of these problems.
