Hi Eniiieny

Thank you for your post!

An absence of periods is called Amenorrhea. In nonpregnant women, amenorrhea may result from a variety of factors, including an existing medical condition, lifestyle, emotional distress, hormonal irregularity, or medication. Every effort should be made to determine the exact cause.

Specific causes of amenorrhea include:

Dramatic weight loss, particularly from drastic diets, eating disorders including anorexia and bulimia , or excessive exercise
Dramatic weight gain or morbid obesity
Birth defects including lack of a uterus, vagina, or other reproductive organs
Medical conditions including cystic fibrosis , Cushing's disease , polycystic ovary , or Prader-Willi syndrome
Psychological stress—can lead to a hormonal imbalance sufficient to cause amenorrhea.
Medications—some antidepressants, chemotherapeutics, corticosteroids, certain contraceptives.
Chromosomal abnormalities
Hermaphroditism (having both male and female reproductive organs)
Pituitary tumor
Thyroid dysfunction
Uterine scarring

Risk Factors
Women who eat a diet that doesn’t provide sufficient caloric intake, exercise excessively, or suffer under considerable psychological distress are more likely to experience amenorrhea.

Women born with chromosomal or hormonal abnormalities, as well as those who suffer from certain chronic diseases, are also more likely to experience amenorrhea.

Eniiieny, if you are a young teen, your absence of periods could be your body adjusting to puberty and isn't anything to worry about but if you are a bit older, it's a good idea to schedule an appointment with your doctor to determine the cause.
