Why has my period stopped?

Tamara HunterBlog

Some of the reasons why your period may have stopped:

1) you could be pregnant 🙂
2) for older women: you are approaching the menopause. The average age is 51.
3) PCOS – polycystic ovarian syndrome
4) High levels of the hormone Prolactin – the hormone helping us to produce breastmilk (when you are lactating after having a baby). When you are leaking from the nipples and you have not had a baby, please see your GP
5) Being overweight – having a significant amount of estrogen coming from the fat cells which then suppresses the cycle
6) Functional Hypothalamic Amenorrhea
7) Some psychological medications, opioids and illicit drugs
