If I work out at least five days a week will I end up skipping periods?

In brief: Work out

If you do very extreme work outs meaning several hrs/day for 5 days/week you may suppress your cycle, especially if you lose 10% of your normal body weight.
Other than that it is unusual to skip your period with routine work outs.

In brief: Probably not

Skipping a period from regular exercise alone is unlikely.
Usually this occurs with more intense exercise or training.
