See your doctor: you may be underweight or exercising too vigorously which can affect the onset or delay of your period. In either case, discuss it with your PCP or OB/GYN.

Probably fine : Not getting a period for some time after stopping oral contraceptives is not rare. If you were my patient I would suggest a trial of acupuncture to help reset the hormonal axis and if it continued I would refer you for a formal gynecology consultation.
