Hello. : Hello. I am assuming that you are an adult female who normally has fairly regular periods. You describe lack of period, marked fatigue, feeling dizzy and nauseated. If your symptoms are related to your lack of a period, could consider thyroid disease or changes in your hormones if you have had a marked drop in weight recently, you have been engaging in heavy physical activity (like running marathons) or you are feeling really stressed. This is not an all inclusive list. If you have really low body fat that can also be an issue. You have likely missed two menstrual cycles or possibly three, depending on how long your cycle is. Recommend that you see your gynecologist to help determine cause. Take care. ...Read more
