Yes, it is still necessary to use contraception if you do not wish to become pregnant. Even if you are only menstruating irregularly, you ARE still menstruating and thus ovulating.
If your periods are this irregular, however, I'd also suggest that you make an appointment to see your doctor. While occasional late periods are not a big deal, having periods that are consistently this irregular is worth looking into.
