In brief: Lots of things

There are a few reasons including thyroid, pituitary gland, and ovarian problems.
If you have missed your period for some time, it is best to consult with your ob/gyn to rule out more serious causes. Secondary amenorrhea is also common in female athletes (e.g., gymnasts, marathon runners, or triathletes) due to their loss of body fat.
