So I'm 14 years old and my mom is kinda of worried. My first period was in 8/8/08 (funny right?) Anyway it's February 2011 now and the last time I got my period was in November 2010. I know periods are irregular in the first 2 years, but it past that now. Is this normal?

You should contact your doctor (it can be your primary care doctor if you do not have a gynecologist), since you have been having regular periods for two years, and then have stopped having a menstrual period for two months (missed December and January).

Hi Anonymous,
Missing your period is not so uncommon during this time. Sometimes, there is really no rhyme or reason to missing periods as we just do. Other factors could be stress, changes in our diet, exercise regimes, etc.

Have you been to a gynecologist yet? Your doctor can prescribe you the Pill in order to maintain a normal period. I am assuming that you are not in fear of pregnancy as you never mentioned sexual activity.

Please keep us updated.

Can you provide some more information?
- Are you 14 years old now, and your first period was when you were 12 years old (in 2008)?

If yes, then:
- Did you then have more periods while you were 12 years old in 2008? (periods after August 2008)?
- When did your periods stop? Are you saying that you had periods from August 2008 through November 2010? And then they stopped?
