In brief: PCOS
Polycystic ovary syndrome may be the cause.
The absence of periods is caused by excessive weight gain. This condition should be evaluated and managed properly. Pcos does not cause weight gain, it is most often the other way around. There may be hereditary tendencies for this condition.
