Most likely you simply have not had a period due to menopause ...this is VERY COMMON in women 45 to 50 years of age ...

I think this is not really anything wrong or of mystery really..

I agree that you should take better care of yourself from standpoint of preventive health care however !!

I hope that this information is helpful for you
