Iron deficiency can lead to iron-deficiency anemia; a condition in which the body can't make enough red blood cells. Now this iron deficiency anemia can delay or stop your periods altogether.

This is no anecdotal evidence but scientific proved evidence. It is correct that not all persons that have good ferritin levels get their periods back but IF the ferritin level is bad you can sometimes do something against it.
Keep feeding. There is light at the end of the tunnel.
The evidence I have read has not indicated that at all. If one googles iron deficiency I have not seen amenorrhea as a symptom.  I refer again to Dr Mulheims post on this thread, for hypothalamic amenorrhea.

You need to google nutritional anemia to find it.

Nutritional deficiency anemia mainly results from a lack of iron, but a lack of folate or vitamin B12 can also cause anemia, and a low vitamin C intake can contribute. ... It can cause red blood cells to be an unusual shape, so that they cannot function properly.
For example here: https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/188770.php

Anemia leads to less red blood cells.
Less red blood cells lead to irregular or no periods.

Again: Not all that get no periods back have anemia. But some have.
