Females who are very athletic can sometimes experience amenorrhea, as can those with anorexia, but you have a "healthy weight."

Overexercising/Anorexia and amenorrhea

Long Term amenorrhea

A: Hello Bethany from the U.S., The problem that you have is more long-term than short term.  The fact that you are not having periods is a sign that your ovaries are not functioning an therefore not ovulating.  Because of that, you are NOT producing the essential female hormones, Estrogen and Progesterone.  Without estrogen, you will be at long term risk for osteoporosis, heart disease, vaginal dryness and shrinkage.  Once these occur, they are not reversible. It is most likely that you have a disorder called "hypogonadotropic hypogonadism" which is a lack of hypothalamic stimulation to produce the hormones that the pituitary produces to stimulate the ovaries.  The thyroid is one of...
