In brief: Delayed Period
Reasons for missed/late periods: low body weight, obesity, marked weight ^ or v, over-exercise, endurance athletics, breast-feeding, ^ stress, illness, eating disorders (bulimia or anorexia), anovulatory cycle (no egg released), travel, hormone irregularities, drug use, meds (i.
e., birth control) or medical problems (i.e. Pcos). #1 reason is pregnancy - but not at your age.

Menopause, in "hormone irregularities," might be the most likely cause at 48.

In brief: Menopause
Menopause cand be another reason , endocrine disease, metabolic disease.
Thats why a doctor should be able to evaluate you and find out what is going on.
