Welcome to ehealthforum,
Irregular periods or long gaps between your periods are associated with anovulatory cycles (menstrual cycles without periodic egg release from ovary), and probable causes for it include: hormonal derangements, thyroid hormone abnormalities, ovarian suppression, PCOS, stress, etc. It is difficult to comment on the exact cause for the irregular/missing periods without examining you and going ahead with further evaluation. The exact cause can only be made out after careful evaluation. You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination and further evaluation to look for the underlying cause for the irregular/missing periods that you describe. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you regulate periods. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Incorporate exercises in daily routine to promote weight loss (to be in ideal weight for height range). Maintain low fat and low carb diet.
Take care.
