Possible: The biggest concern would be unexplained rapid weight loss! Your cycle can be influenced by a number of things, including the weight loss. A few things that can influence both; thyroid disease, diabetes, ovarian disease. I would encourage you to be evaluated as soon as possible.

See answer: Rapid weight loss can cause you to miss a period due to hormonal changes. If the weight loss is unusual and not the result of dieting and exercise you should see your physician to see what the cause is.
