Not dangerous.: The first thing to make sure of is whether or not you are pregnant, so you should do a test or go to your doctor for one. The other common causes for secondary amenorrhea are exercising a lot,especially running,and eating disorders. Thyroid disease and other chronic diseases can also cause this.Were you on Birth Control pills at all? I would recommend that you see your doctor to check all of this.
