The most common causes are lots of exercise (e.g. competitive swimming) with not enough food intake, or an eating disorder. Regaining the lost weight usually restarts periods but it can take a while.

I need to know if can I get pregnant with primary amenorrhea?

Cannot; see a GYN.: If your brain isn't signalling for an egg release from your ovary, you won't have a signal for your periods either; that's usually the cause of amenorrhea. Often it's a hormonal imbalance--Thyroid, Prolactin, LH, FSH, Hcg should be checked. Your doctor can also induce a period as well w/ OCPs.
