my girlfriend is not getting periods for 3 months now. she is 30 and absolutely not pregnant. what could be the reason and cure for this. ?

Not ovulating: No period for 3 months means no ovulation for 3 months, since ovulation brings on a period 2 weeks later. If she wishes to become pregnant, there are pills her doctor can prescribe to help her to ovulate. If she doesn't wish to become pregnant now, then it's advisable for her to take Progesterone pills for 7-10 days to bring on a period and prevent problems from buildup of the uterine lining.

Late: Reasons for missed/late periods: low body weight, obesity, marked weight ^ or v, over-exercise, endurance athletics, breast-feeding, ^ stress, illness, eating disorders (bulimia or anorexia), anovulatory cycle (no egg released), travel, hormone irregularities, drug use, meds (i.e., birth control) or medical problems (i.e. PCOS). #1 reason is pregnancy.
