21 and no period: Would go to a gyn and have an ultrasound and check prolactin levels and TSH ( thyroid) levels for a start. . You may have polycytic ovarian syndrome, or a prolactinoma or other dysfunction it may be that the obesity is part of the syndroem why you don't have a period.Follow up with gyn or endocrinologist
