Dear BeingGirl Experts,

I have a question about my period. I started for the first time on January 4, and it lasted a little less than a week. But I haven't had it again, and it's April 12. Is there something wrong? I really need to know because you are supposed to get it every month, right? Why haven't I started again yet?

Dear India,

When you first start your period it isn't uncommon to have your first period and then not have one for several months or you may have another one in just a few weeks. Some girls will go as long as a year before their period arrives again. You may start out with a regular cycle and then become irregular. Having an unpredictable cycle is not uncommon during your teen years. It may take several years for your cycle to become regular.

 

We recommend you keep a menstrual calendar and record each period, including the flow. Take the calendar in with you when you have your next doctor's appointment and explain your irregular flow to him/her if this is still a concern.

 

Hope this helps,

Your BeingGirl Experts

OMG, this happened to me too!!!!! I hope it gets back to normal for me, i just had it like 2 days ago, idk, like i had it for a LITTLE bit more than a week, but i bet its normal right? I dont think im having it right now, but i hope it takes LESS than a year, obiously, my period will come in the most unexpected times, so i NEED my mom to see this website, and she will, i need pantyliners and im all out of pads, and i have night pads, so then i want her to let me use tamons, but i dont think she will...

Okay, so I think my period might be regular from the start because I got it on June 26th and it lasted only 2 days and then on the 20th I saw red, next day nothing, then 22nd there was brownish stuff on my pantiliner (sorry for TMI) and I think it was just because it's sort of irregular so it was a 25 day cycle and if it's regular then my 4th period will come the day after school starts for me. :( I'll be prepared! :)
