Missed 3 periods

I’m 13 and I’ve missed three periods but I’ve never engaged in any sexual activity. What could be the problem?

Hello. Thank you for posting.

Most of the time, irregular periods are part of the normal changes that can happen when you're a teen. At some point, as you get older, your cycle will probably settle into a recognizable pattern. This usually happens by 3 years after your first period. If you miss your next period, however, mention this to your parent and/or doctor.
