Hello and thank you for sharing your question.

It is very common to have irregular and even missed periods during adolescent years.  This is because your body is still trying to reach a hormonal balance.  It is no cause for alarm.

The only time it is necessary to have a regular period is if you are trying to get pregnant or you have negative symptoms related to your cycle such as debilitating cramps.
