Dear Anon,

Thank you for your post.

During the teen years, your period may not always arrive "on time" or regularly. It can sometimes take up to two years from the time you start menstruating for your body to develop a regular cycle as your body is experiencing changing hormone levels typical for teenagers. If your period suddenly stops for a few months, see your doctor.
