If no hormone problems & pcos is ruled out & the obgyn tells you to see an endocrinologist...What could be the cause for secondary amnorrea?

In brief: Not sure

Since the menstrual cycle is controlled by hormones, i don't understand the comment.
Your physician recommended you see an endocrinologist which sounds like a good idea.

If you mean ovarian/uterine and PCOS problems are ruled out by OBGYN, then other glands like thyroid, pituitary and adrenal need be checked, preferably by an endocrinologist. Secondary amenorrhea can be due to non-endocrine causes as well.

In brief: Several possibilitie

It sounds like you need to see the endocrinologist.
Possible explanations might include hypothalamic amenorrhea, non-congenital anatomic issues (e.g. Asherman's/scarring), or other more rare conditions.
