In brief: Many possibilities

This could be a normal phase, but could also be a medical problem. If you are just starting to get your periods, or close to menopause, you might go for months without menstrual flow.
However, there are other causes, such as being overweight or having hormone abnormalities or physical problems like tissue in your uterus blocking the flow. It is worth getting checked out with this one.
