Welcome to ehealthforum,
A tipped uterus does not necessarily cause absent periods by itself. The cause for your absent periods should be further investigated especially to look for secondary amenorrhea and post pill amenorrhea, ovarian suppression etc. Consider visiting your gynecologist/obstetrician for thorough evaluation and further investigations to look for the underlying cause. Get started on appropriate treatment to get back periods and regulate your periods and with help in getting pregnant. Be in regular follow-up with your gynecologist and report any unusual/new symptoms immediately.
Take care.
