Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you to wait a bit and see if your cycles get back on schedule.  It sounds as though you are certain that you are not pregnant, so you have a little bit of  time to play around with. (I usually warn my patients not to go more than 3 months without one).  If you are not gettinig your period within a few weeks, you may want to consider something to regulate your cycles-- such as oral contraceptives.
Good luck!
