I found the below paragraph discussing some possibilities. Also, low body weight/low fat diet can alter cycles, as well as stress and other lifestyle issues. I would ask your doctor. Perhaps he/she could order some tests or recommend a specialist. Good luck! :))

Amenorrhea occurs if the hypothalamus and pituitary fail to provide appropriate gonadotropin stimulation to the ovary, resulting in inadequate production of estradiol or in failure of ovulation and progesterone production. Amenorrhea can also occur if the ovaries fail to produce adequate amounts of estradiol despite normal and appropriate gonadotropin stimulation by the hypothalamus and pituitary. In some cases, the hypothalamus, pituitary, and ovaries all may be functioning normally, yet amenorrhea occurs because of adhesions in the endometrial cavity or an obstruction to the cervicovaginal outflow tract.
