It's easy to think that you can't get pregnant if you're not having a regular menstrual cycle. It makes perfect sense that if you're not having periods, you're not fertile. The truth is that whether or not you can become pregnant depends on why you're not menstruating and if you're ovulating. Even if you're not having regular periods, you could become pregnant and should use birth control to prevent pregnancy unless you're trying to conceive.
