No: That should have no effect of your periods. It may affect other things. So would definitely get an evaluation, especially if this is a change for you.

Way too much alcohol: A bottle of wine is about 6 drinks (a serving is 4 oz, = alcohol to a shot or a beer), & 2 more drinks = 8 drinks a night. This is way too much for anyone's health. Moderate drinking for avg woman (per world health org) is 1 drink per occasion. 3 drinks a day can kill as many platelets as your body can make. Please get an evaluation @ a treatment ctr or from an addiction medicine specialist.

Depends: In this situaation, amenorrhea occurs because the pituitary is shutting down due to weight loss and malnutrition. The point when this occur is different for everyone. You can't predict it. That being said, it's never a good idea to "starve" yourself for anything!, even for weight loss.

Pregnancy first !!: Must rule out pregnancy first ! if no menses prior (called primary amenorrhea) abve age 15yrs, then anatomical causes also must be considered (lack of uterus, blood flow blockage, etc). If menses took place prior (called secondary amenorrhea) then hormonal causes such as elevated prolactin, testosterone or low thyroid should be considered. Significant weight loss also possible. Talk with your pcp.

The most common cause of secondary amenorrhea, periods stop after a previous history of periods, is stress, physical (illness, injury, poor nutrition, weight loss, too much exercise, and others,) and emotional stress.

What is oligo-amenorrhea?

Dr. Susan Wingo
Endocrinology 33 years experience
Too few periods: Oligo- means few (or little); menorrhea describes menses, or periods. So oligomenorrhea means having too few periods, usually defined as 6 or fewer in 1 year. A- means no, so amenorrhea means no periods.

See an MD: You probably need to see an endocrinologist for a full hormonal evaluation, but i would start with your primary care doctor first - just to make sure - before you wait for the specialist appointment.
