The laboratory testing done for absence of period (termed as secondary amenorrhea) should include measurements of serum prolactin, thyrotropin, and FSH to test for hyperprolactinemia, thyroid disease, and ovarian failure. Apart from pregnancy other causes of missed or delayed periods are;

1) Ovarian hormone dysfunctions

2) Thyroid hormone abnormalities

3) Stress, anxiety, emotional disorders

4) Sudden weight loss or gain

5) Excessive physical activity

6) Hyperprolactinemia

Read the resource under the heading secondary amenorrhea (delayed or missed periods);

https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/amenorrhea/symptoms-causes/syc-20369299

https://medlineplus.gov/ency/article/001219.htm

The screening tests for the patient with amenorrhea include urinary HCG, complete blood count, sedimentation rate, thyroid function, prolactin, FSH and LH, and assessment of estrogen status.

Causes of amenorrhea/delayed period are pregnancy, drugs, and systemic diseases, hypothalamic and pituitary amenorrhea, "postpill" amenorrhea; hyperprolactinemia, androgen resistance, etc.

basically what this means is I don’t have answers until I get tested?
I’ve had stress cause if uni exams and assignments but I’ve been doing for 3 years so I’m sure that’s not the problem or maybe it it but I’m not aware? And yes I’ve gained weight. I’ve been 65kg for 4 years and all of a sudden it keeps raising

The cause can be only determined by blood work.

But usually the period will resume on its own as it is a self remitting issue.
