Not Endometriosis: Unless you are taking hormonal medicine for endometriosis, the endometriosis would not cause lack of periods. By definition, unless proven otherwise, you are now in menopause.

Menopause: Very unlikely for the cause to be something else besides menopause but i would recommend doctor visit to ensure nothing else is going on.
