why i dont get periods during athletics training ?

I am a female athlete that trains rather rigourously. During my season I don t get my period at all. None of my teammates experience this, should I be concerned? Also, I am not nor have I ever been sexually active, so there is no possible way for me to be pregnant .

Hello There..
welcome to healthcare magic forum..
Lack of period in your case may be because of vigorous exercise and poor eating which in turn reduces the estrogen level in your body leading to absence of menstruation.I would advice you to consult a doctor and discuss with them about the further management and treatment of your condition!!
Hope this helps!!
Take care!!
