Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Some girls will find that their menstrual cycle lasts 28 days, whereas others might have a 24-day cycle, a 30-day cycle, or even longer. Following menarche, menstrual cycles last 21-45 days. After a couple of years, cycles shorten to an adult length of 21-34 days for some women.

Irregular periods are common in girls who are just beginning to menstruate. 

You need to discuss this more with your doctor or Pediatrician.
