I don't understand: I don't understand your question. Everyone eats and drinks! if a woman doesn't get enough calories and is significantly underweight, she can miss periods. If she is significantly overweight, it can cause a hormone imbalance as well. If it is less than 2 years from when you started the periods, they may be irregular at times. If your periods continue to irregular, see your doctor.
