Missed periods 3 months

Havent had my periods for 3 months, only small brown clots/discharge last month for 3-4 days. Cycle is generally irregular. This had happened once before 2 years back. Doctor had prescribed Ergest LD then and I got my periods after 5 days. What could be the reason now and how seriously should I be bothered?
