i would go to the doc because you could be pregnant or something else could be going on take care and good luck
Have you consulted your gyn/midwife or even regular doctor about why you aren't getting pregnant? Do you chart or temp to get an idea of what is going on? Of course I can't diagnose you but the lack of regular periods sounds like PCOS or something else causing you to not ovulate. You can't get pregnant if you don't ovulate. there are a lot of medications you can take to help with PCOS or jump start ovulation. You might want to read Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler to get an idea of how it's all supposed to work so you have some jumping off points when you talk to your doctor.
Best of luck to you!

I agree -- I would read Taking Charge of Your Fertility, and schedule an appointment with a midwife or ob/gyn. When I was your age, I also had crazy long cycles, and could go months without ovulating (sometimes having break through bleeding). When we wanted to conceive our first son, it drove me crazy not knowing where I was in my cycle, and all of the traditional wisdom of when women ovulate didn't apply to me. I discovered an online forum (back when they were first getting started), and someone recommended TCOYF -- the book changed my life, literally. I started charting and following my cm and cervical changes, and discovered my patterns. My first son was conceived on cd (cycle day) 101 of the first cycle after I read the book. If I hadn't been taking my temperature, I would have given up long before I ever ovulated. I discovered that my luteal phase (the 2 weeks after you ovulate) was normal and consistent, but that my pre-ovulatory hormones were perhaps a bit out of whack.
At any rate, I had a healthy and happy 9 months, and a beautiful baby boy. My pregnancy seemed to have regulated my hormones for the most part, as we went on to have 3 more babies, and my cycles have been fairly normal and regular ever since (I now ovulate around day 20 which is later than average, but much better than day 101!).
