A reason for an exam: Irregular periods - in your case, absent - is not necessarily dangerous but it is not normal and might indicate a problem you'd want to correct if possible. Ovary problems are a frequent cause and so are eating disorders. Have an exam and find out. Don't worry - but do know what's happening. Best wishes.
