Dear Chioma, Thanks for providing the additional information.
Well, absence of periods since last 2 months, is of concern and should be evaluated by doctor. Possible causes are-

-Thyroid dysfunction
-Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOD)
-Hormonal imbalance

It is advised to undergo Thyroid function test,LH, FSH, Prolactin,S.testosterone levels ,Transvaginal sonography.
You need to get a clinical examination and tests done by your doctor.
Your doctor may prescribed hormone pills after tests.
Further management will be advised accordingly after tests.
