Hello and welcome to HCM,
I am Dr Nilajkumar a consultant gynecologist and I will be helping you in your queries.
You have no periods and are not pregnant. The ultrasound shows fibroid:

Fibroids are non cancerous uterine tumors. They are not always symptomatic and may remain for many years without diagnosis. They need to be treated only if they grow big or produce symptoms like bleeding, pain, pressure, infertility etc. Since you do not seem to have any of these, the fibroid most likely is asymptomatic. Please mention the size as if it is big it may need removal.

About the absent periods. The possible causes may be thyroid and prolactin hormone disturbances, stress, excessive exercise, menopause [ I do not know your age]. Please get a hormone check and also see if the other factors are present. Treatment will then depend upon the cause.

Hope this was helpful.
Feel free to ask any further queries and I will be happy to help.
Thanks for using HCM.
Have a good day.
