What Causes Amenorrhoea?

There are a number of potential reasons why your period might have been delayed, missed or different from normal. The most common causes include:

  • Pregnancy - If you’ve been sexually active recently, it may be that the contraception you used hasn’t worked.
  • Contraception - Some forms of contraception can cause periods to become irregular or stop altogether.
  • Stress - There are a number of ways stress can impact your physical health and this includes your menstrual cycle. Too much stress can cause periods to become irregular.
  • Being overweight - If you’re overweight or obese, your body may produce too much oestrogen, one of the hormones that regulates your menstrual cycle. This can delay or stop your menstrual cycle.
  • Being underweight - If you’re severely restricting your calorie intake and/or exercising intensively, your weight loss could cause a hormonal imbalance that affects your menstrual cycle.
  • The menopause - Periods stopping is a natural part of the menopause and can be one of the early signs that it’s starting. Most women experience the menopause from the age of around 45.
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) - Thought to affect around 1 in 10 women, this condition prevents your ovaries releasing an egg.
