Hi Josey

Thanks for your question and welcome! There are several reasons for missed periods including

Pregnancy (but you have established you are not)
Stress (you are experiencing this)
Eating Disorders

Do you see anything else here that strikes you as perhaps pertaining to you?

How old are you? If you are 40 or over, (or close to it) you may be entering perimenopause.

Your doctor will likely begin by running some tests on your (hormone checks) to see where you are there.

Are you going to set up an appointment? Will you let us know how it goes?
