In brief: Many causes for...

Missing a period can have many causes.
One is over exercising. Thinking teleologically, the body does not want pregnancy to occur under intense physical stress. If exercise causes period loss, estrogen levels fall, and are a cause for osteoporosis. However, not knowing your intensity and duration, many other causes are in play, including thyroid, prolactin, etc.
