    I've had this a few times before - Stress can be a contributing factor. I didn't do anything to get them back though, I was just glad they were gone albeit temporarily!

    Agree with both of the above

    Also if you are sexually active - it wouldn't hurt just to take a pregnancy test to rule it out

    lucky you. wish this would happen to me, I'm almost 38, and don't want kids but my period is like clockwork.

    I have lost my period for about 3 months but it was during a time of heavy intense exercise and stressful environment = Army basic training. They told us that would happen so i wasn't worried. The day it came back was on Thanksgiving day 😐

    I had it happen a few times over the years, either because of stress or increased exercise (thruhiking a long trail for 6 months). I didn't worry about it because I wasn't planning on getting pregnant and besides I wasn't in a position to consult a doctor. If you care about your fertility, it would be a good idea to talk to your gynecologist.
