Hello Atlantha, thanks for the question to HealthReplies.com
You should explain more fully about the symptoms that you are feeling right now. Basically certain mental disorders (including depression) are diagnoses that can only be made by a doctor. In making a diagnosis of certain mental disorders, doctors must also rule out the possibility of certain physical illnesses as well as the use of certain drugs / substances that can cause mental symptoms. For example, people with a history of head injuries, strokes, brain tumors, thyroid disorders, other cancers, certain hormonal disorders, people who use certain illegal drugs, women who use hormonal contraception, people who use long-term steroids can also experience symptoms as do depressed people.
Symptoms of menstruation can indeed be influenced by high stress conditions, but there are many other possibilities that can also cause a woman to not experience menstruation. Some possible causes for someone not menstruating include:
pregnancy use of hormonal contraception certain hormonal disorders for example in patients with thyroid hormone disorders, diabetes, PCOS excessive weight or too low increase or decrease in excess body weight excessive exercise etc. If you do experience symptoms of depression and the symptoms that you feel cause interference significant in your life (for example, so you can not learn, can not socialize, can not take care of yourself properly, have a tendency to hurt yourself / suicide), you should immediately check yourself to a psychiatrist. Psychiatrists who will later explore further possible causes of these symptoms, whether it is caused by certain mental disorders or there are physical causes or the use of drugs that can cause these symptoms.
In addition to information from me, hopefully enough to answer
