If you are not pregnant, other causes of missed or irregular periods include

Eating disorders, such as anorexia or bulimia.

Increased exercise. Missed periods are common in endurance athletes.

Extreme emotional stress.


Medications, such as hormonal birth control methods, which may cause lighter, less frequent, more frequent, or skipped periods.

Hormonal abnormalities, which cause fluctuating levels of the hormones needed to support menstruation.

Illegal drug use.

Problems with the pelvic organs, such as imperforate hymen, polycystic ovary syndrome, or Asherman's syndrome.

Breast-feeding. Many women do not resume regular periods until they have completed breast-feeding.
