There are a number of causes for not having periods. From what you describe, the most likely reason in your case is polycystic ovarian syndrome. THe problem here is that you do not ovulate. This condition is often associated with insulin resistance. You should see your doctor to check whether this is the case. If so, there are drugs that can be used to stimulate ovulation. In the meantime, it would be important to take the oral contraceptive pill so that you get sufficient oestrogen.
