I'm not an expert on that but I can tell you what my doctor told me.  There are lots of reasons one would not have a period or have a very light one.  Stress is a huge contributor to your flow, it can make it heavier or lighter or not at all.  Also, if you have been doing very physical activity and are not use to it, that can slow or stop your period.  It is always best to check with your doctor when the issue is your health.  If you don't like what he/she has to say get a second and third opinion.
