Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you are having regular periods (periodic ovulation or egg release from ovary) then chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out. If the D&C was rough, and the basal endometrial lining got injured, then it can affect the normal built up of endometrial lining (in response to hormonal changes) and result in delayed or absent periods. Consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for a thorough evaluation to look for the cause for the absent periods.
Take care.
