In brief: Better diet
Your body needs enough good cholesterol and fats so that your ovaries can make the hormones (estrogen and progesterone) you need to have a regular period.
Excessive exercise can also keep you from getting your period as it shuts down the ovaries.

In brief: Gain weight
I would advise getting a checkup, to make sure everything is alright.
Unless and until a female attains a minimum amount of body fat, menses will not resume. See a gynecologist who can best address this matter. Good luck.
