Look up your local Family Planning clinic. They will provide free or low cost gynecological exams and birth control to the uninsured/ low income.
You do need to be seen by a doctor to determine the cause of this, and they will probably give you a medication to start your period, then it would be a good idea to get on a birth control to regulate your periods so you can plan on concieving.
It is good you have been working out to lose weight, as extra weight can cause complications during pregnancy.
By the time you have regulated your periods for a few months, and have lost a few pounds, you will be ready for a healthy pregnancy.
