Many reasons!: Besides pregnancy, common causes for isolated missed periods in women with previously normal periods include: include perimenopause, premature ovarian failure (if under 40), polycystic ovary syndrome, endocrine abnormalities, medication side effects, and prolonged high stress levels. If you miss more than a few, it's best to visit a gyn to figure out what's going on.
