Anon - Generally it's recommended to live a healthy lifestyle to naturally support a regular cycle, and that would of course include good nutrition and a regular exercise program. If you daughter is already doing this she may just be among those who have irregular periods. There could also be a medical cause. The following article provides helpful information. http://www.empowher.com/menstrual-cycle/content/what-s-deal-irregular-periods?page=0,0
