Welcome to ehealthforum,
Absence of periods for more than 2 months is not normal. You should consider visiting a gynecologist to look out for hormonal derangements, ovarian problems, other causes for secondary amenorrhea, etc. If you had been sexually active, then you should also consider getting an ultrasound scan done to confirm rule it pregnancy and to have the gestational age of baby and probable conception date if pregnant (pregnancy is possible even with pre-cum coming in contact with vagina if you are during your fertile days). The scan done will also help in looking for any ovarian problems.
Take care.
