In brief: No, go see a doctor

There are many causes for irregular menstruation.
One common one is polycystic ovarian syndrome (pcos), a hormonal imbalance along with cysts in the ovaries. Though most irregular menstruation is not immediately dangerous, any woman who does not menstruate monthly should consider seeing her primary care doctor or an ob/gyn for evaluation.

In brief: Generally, no

It depends on your age, but amenorrhea (lack of periods) can have several causes.
If left unevaluated and untreated, you could be at risk for osteoporosis or even uterine cancer. It is in your best interest to see your doctor.
