started my period in July, so I am new to the whole peirod stuff, I was just wondering if it’s normal to for your period to be irregular and wonky.

Hello. Thank you for writing.

Irregular periods are not unusual at your age. It's quite common for some girls to have irregular periods during their first year or so of menstruation. However, it's not normal to miss your period for 3 to 5 months in a row, especially if you have had a period regularly for some months before that. As you get older, your periods will become more regular.
