Thanks for the query.

Irregularity in periods can occur due to many causes, like:
-Stress and strain
-Weight changes due to change in diet or exercise pattern
-Hormonal disorders like thyroid abnormalities
-Recent illness
-Poly cystic ovary disease
-Pregnancy etc.
So try to correlate which might be the cause for your problem.
Then consult your gynecologist and discuss regarding that.
According to the cause treatment can be taken.

You can consult your regular doctor only and tell her that you didn't get the periods as expected by her.
Then with her advice you can go for progesterone pills to induce withdrawal bleeding.
