This needs an eval.: Multiple reasons for three months of amenorrhea: something affecting the messengers from the brain to the ovary, something affecting the ovary itself, something affecting the uterus's ability to have a menses (this latter is unlikely given that you had periods up until three months ago). To properly figure this out, you will need to draw a number of hormone labs. Best to see a gyn.

24 it is on its way: At 24 yr old , it is on its way, don't worry you ail be fine, one of the common cause of temporary amenorrhea in young woman besides pregnancy ( not having period ) is excessive exercise . In marthon runners periods will also run away , speak to your gyn doctor.
